Produktbeschreibung
Hidden Women are women about whom we know nothing, or very little, so they are shades or shadows in the life of Jung Bahadur Rana who founded the Rana dynasty that ruled Nepal for 104 years. Nothing is written about the women in his life except that against his wishes they committed sati when he was cremated. Strong and independent women, they had influence on him, enjoyed a prominent place in his life, and ironically the one he admired most tried to kill him. It is a novel look at his story, worn out by many Nepali writers, as it is the first time being told through the eyes of the women in his life. Thoroughly researched, Greta Rana builds together a feasible picture of how women lived and thought, hoped and died in a restrictive feudal society.

Autorenporträt
Greta Rana MBE (awarded Order of the British Empire in 2005) is an author and poet born in Yorkshire, UK. She has been living in Nepal for over forty years. She first ventured into literary fiction in the 1970s after two short genre novels, 'Nothing Greener' and 'Distant hills' and a popular cliff-hanger written for a weekly newspaper titled 'Against the Winds of Tomorrow.' Her work in mountain areas was to provide the themes for her novels as she observed a country left behind and finding transition difficult against the ethnic and cultural divides and the suffering caused by the desperation of poverty in one of the harshest terrains on earth: her insights have also been sharpened by periods living in Laos and Afghanistan and work in and visits to Pakistan's Northern Areas.
