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 15, 2012, Peshawar -- My first full day in the city that was once the crossroads of commerce for Asia and Europe. Shazia arranges a tour guide. Islamia College, the marketplace, the gate to the city, and street boys gathering around the strange, tall, pale American. Also servants and shops.
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.
