Editorial Reviews


"How do we accept what life brings us? Dhola, translated with verve by Susan Wadley, explores this universal question. Meticulously researched and thoughtfully contextualized, this book grants scholarly insight and human wisdom, too." Kirin Narayan "Tells a wonderful story, one much loved in northern India... fills an important lacuna in the work on oral epic." Lindsey Harlan
