Reviews

""Sky Burial" brings a wealth of ritual and lore from various strains of Buddhism, as well as Mesoamerican and other spiritual traditions, all explained in ample, helpful notes that distinguish yamas from thangkas, and so on...the intensity and seriousness and openness of her investigations make [Dana] Levin's use of this material utterly her own, and utterly riveting."--"The New Yorker"
