TRAVELS WITH MY DAUGHTER is much more than a travel book. Niema Ash relates her experiences with some of the most talented poets and musicians of our time, including Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Seamus Heaney and Irving Layton. In her travels to Greece, to the Yeats Summer School in Ireland and, most importantly, to Morocco with her teenage daughter, she introduces us to characters, scenes and incidents – erotic, risqué, dangerous and profound – with a literary skill that transforms the reader into participant.

Travels With My Daughter turns a world of convention and protocol upside-down in an honest and often humorous account of an extraordinary mother-daughter relationship many only dream about. It is a celebration of travel, motherhood and life itself.

Niema Ash is that rare and most admirable character – a born writer. Bravo!

Irving Layton

Niema Ash’s prose is soaring…I was beguiled.

TOUCHING TIBET With a foreword by THE DALAI LAMA

A perceptive critic said “Niema Ash is the ideal author of a travel book – passionate, curious, self-critical – with a rare ability to describe not only the outward appearance of a foreign land, but to evoke, in splendidly vivid prose, its very essence. These qualities are especially evident in Touching Tibet.

Tibet is a country every traveller dreams of visiting. For Niema Ash that dream became a compulsion and finally an unforgettable reality. Her sympathy and affection for the country and its inhabitants shine through this very personal account of her travels. In a lively, informal style she conveys not only impressions of everyday life and descriptions of unique Tibetan customs and traditions but brings us Tibetan history, politics and religion from a fresh, unstudied perspective. A good eye for intriguing and amusing details, and a gift for story-telling, make her descriptions both vivid and memorable.

Excellent – Niema Ash really understands the situation facing Tibet and conveys it with remarkable perception

Tenzin Choegyal (brother of the Dalai Lama)

Mesmerising….Book of the week.

The Sunday Times

Almost surreal in its assemblage of improbably colliding facts – a marriage of the bizarre and the beautiful that chills the spine as often as it warms the heart.

The Times

Reading the book is the next best thing to being there
