Description
In a piercingly perceptive voice, Maura Moynihan tells clear, insightful stories of the world in which she has long been a part, in which Indian servants mix with cosmopolitan expatriates and tourists. Moynihan touches even the most serious tales of social caste and spiritual search with a healthy amount of humor. We watch as the garish British Lucy preens and poses in her futile attempts to get Masterji, the Dalai Lama -- like spiritual leader, to choose her as his successor. Each story is peopled with a cast of colorful characters, who change through their enounters with one another. We meet a good-natured human rights activist who ultimately sees his own hypocrisy when he rejects the chance to help a needy torture victim.

Full of irony, charm, and epiphanies about cultural exchange and cultural barriers, Yoga Hotel is an impressive collection sure to make its mark on audiences around the world.
