First review of Laotian Pages
The first review of our translation of Alfred Raquez’s Pages Laotiennes has appeared…by Peter Gordon in the Asian Review of Books!
Check it out!
“The book is of course of academic interest, both for Raquez’s detailed (if not always objective) observations of customs, dress, festivals, ruins, temples, and the like, as well as for its first-hand look at the philosophy behind French colonialism. The appeal of the book to the general reader is probably Raquez himself, who is irrepressible.”
