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 21, 2012, Pakistan -- At 8:30 a.m. on my last day in Peshawar, Aslam Khan fetches me for a trip to the Buddhist ruins at Taxila, outside Islamabad. A World Heritage site, Taxila's museum is far better curated and signed than any of the museums I've seen thus far. The focus is the first and second centuries A.D., when the story of the Buddha began in these parts, and a number of remarkably well preserved artifacts, in stone and in stucco, fill the museum. We are clearly honored guests.
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.
