It was 1963, and Xinran was five years old, when she first heard the rumour - one of China's soldiers had been brutally dissected and fed to the vultures. Thirty years would pass before Xinran learned the truth about the ritual of sky burial through the shocking life story of Shu Wen, a woman who had spent most of her life on the Tibetan plateau in search of her lost husband. Translated by Julia Lovell and Esther Tyldesley.
