Nurmuhemmet Yasin was a popular author of short stories, essays and poetry when he was arrested in Kashgar, China in 2004. He had just published Wild Pigeon, a Uyghur tale of longing for lost freedom. This e-book features the now banned tale and an essay about love. Yasin is due to be released in November 2014, if he is still alive.

Customer Reviews

a wonderful, informative tale

This iBook version of the writings of a Uyghur writer, imprisoned ten years ago for his fiction, includes a moving allegory illustrating this Muslim minority's plight. The land, located in Central Asia and now part of China, is home to about 10 million Uyghur people whose religion and ancient traditions are repressed by an authoritative government. Sounds familiar? Read on and get a glimpse on how this feels from the oppressed point of view.
