Karen Connelly Discusses her Memoir Burmese Lessons

July 12th, 2010

In a new video, author Karen Connelly discusess her compelling memoir Burmese Lessons, about her journey to Burma, where she fell in love with a leader of the Burmese rebel army. Much of her story is about the unequal relationship between the men and women working in the revolutionary movement, whom she lived with in the jungle along the Thai-Burmese border. “That’s a huge problem still in the developing world, in our world, and in every world.”

Burmese Lessons was an Elle Reader’s Pick. Read why here. And be sure to visit Connelly’s website.
