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 13, 2012, Lahore--I would be seriously remiss if I did not report on the vast numbers of beggars in Lahore. The abyss between rich and poor yawns very wide. The only middle-class existence I’ve spotted yet was in the apartment of Eesha’s professor. And clearly the plenitude of servants is a straightforward result of poverty, of the ability of the rich to exploit the poor or to offer certain poor families a safe home and a small income. Pick your interpretation.
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.
