Praise for Lucy Ferriss's work:
“Vivid, compelling, as ineluctable as a Greek tragedy, A Sister to Honor illuminates the complexity of globalism's cultural disjunctions. . . . Lucy Ferriss's nuanced insight enables us to see this story from all sides -- a rare achievement.”

April 17, 2012, Peshawar, Pakistan -- I am living like a princess. Staying with my friend Shazia Sadaf and her family. Shazia teaches literature at the University of Peshawar, which I expected to be a backwater but which turns out to be an old, beautiful institution cheek by jowl with Islamia College, built under British rule to have a center of higher learning in this large & populous province. I am sitting in a luxurious room right now, having been served my second cup of tea by the gray-bearded, white-capped cook in his white shalwar kameez, who also set out my lovely breakfast and made sure that I had everything my heart could desire, and all this without saying a word.
I'll send you a copy of my forthcoming American Scholar essay, "Meditation on a Rat," and after that, one or two updates a year when I have a new story or article coming out.
