FROM THIS EPISODE

A moody historical novel, Miss Burma(Grove Press) by Charmaine Craig explores history as it is inscribed in the souls of a rather special Burmese family. A man marries a woman who speaks a different language and practices a separate culture. Their daughter is, at the beginning of the longest running civil war in recorded history, one of the winners of the Miss Burma beauty pageant. Craig discusses personal problems reflecting cultural problems, and seeking grace within reality.
