X ~ Xīnrán

I had a few titles starting with 'X' that I could have chosen, but I think this author is more worthy of mention.

Xīnrán is an author I discovered mostly by accident back in 2009.  I was trying to read one author for each letter of the alphabet.  It isn't easy to find an author to fill in the 'X' with and so I went looking.

I found Sky Burial: An Epic Love Story of Tibet by Xīnrán.  It was non-fiction and I just wasn't sure what to expect.  It was a wonderful!  I loved it so much that I later read The Good Women of China: Hidden Voices, another non-fiction, which was also quite good.  They were both eye-opening looks into cultures I knew very little about.  I highly recommend them!
