[T]his is a very stimulating and rigorously researched book, presenting a multi-faceted examination and analysis of this genre. It is a book about dohori itself, of course, and its spread beyond the rural areas to new contexts with new values. But it is also a wonderfully interconnected book about Nepal, politics and social and cultural change, from the intimate, individual, and emotional outwards.
