In the circular valley beneath the looming peaks of the Himalaya lies Kathmandu, Nepal. It's a city of shimmering prayer flags, sacred cows, lavish festivals and violent political turbulence - and a world that journalist Jeff Greenwald has come to call home. Snake Lake unfolds during 1990's dramatic 'people power' uprising against Nepal's long-entrenched monarchy. Inspired by real events that evolved during one calamitous spring, Snake Lake weaves a vivid tapestry of three profoundly different paths to liberation: revolution, enlightenment and suicide.
