An Evening with Tsering Yangzom Lama and her new novel "We Measure the Earth with Our Bodies"

For readers of 'Homegoing' and 'The Leavers', a compelling and profound debut novel about a Tibetan family's journey through exile. Breathtaking in its scope and powerful in its intimacy, 'We Measure the Earth with Our Bodies' is a gorgeously written meditation on colonization, displacement, and the lengths we'll go to remain connected to our families and ancestral lands. Told through the lives of four people over fifty years, this novel provides a nuanced, moving portrait of the little-known world of Tibetan exiles.
