Adam Popescu is a writer and journalist whose work has appeared in The New York Times, Washington Post, Bloomberg Businessweek, Vanity Fair, National Geographic, Conde Nast Traveler, Marketplace, Playboy, Fast Company, Scientific American, Outside, The Guardian, New Scientist, Los Angeles Magazine, and elsewhere. In 2013, he climbed 18,000 feet up Mount Everest, covering the impact of tourism on the land and local people for the BBC. That experience would inspire his debut novel, Nima.

Reviews

"This striking depiction of Sherpa life, particularly the difficulties faced by Sherpa women, is bolstered by Nima's strong narrative voice, making this a perfect fit for book clubs." --Publishers Weekly
"Adam Popescu's novel Nima is as much a composite memoir of the tragic optimism of Himalayan youth as a fictional account of a blossoming woman surviving the perils of both nature and modernity at the same time. It paints a memorably vivid contrast between the power of the mountains and that of the human spirit. Beautifully done." --Parag Khanna, author of The Future is Asian
"Set against the backdrop of Mount Everest, this portrait of a young Sherpa woman is a breathlessly climbing, thrillingly high-stakes coming-of-age story... Nima is the perfect book club pick--full of high stakes storytelling that everyone will devour, with plenty of thought-provoking nuances to explore in discussion." --Foreword Reviews
