“A long-overdue and brilliantly edited volume on the Tibetan experience.” —Gary Shteyngart

“This anthology of contemporary fiction from Tibet, with stories from Tibet as well as the diaspora, paints the most real and haunting portraits of Tibetan lives in all their complexities and contradictions. Old Demons, New Deities is a unique contribution to world literature.”
—Tsering Shakya, Canada Research Chair, Religion & Contemporary Society in Asia, University of
British Columbia


“Tenzin Dickie is to be congratulated on having gathered here these twenty-one short stories by arguably the best Tibetan authors writing today. Informatively introduced by her, this volume is a most welcome treat for anyone interested in literature per se and opens a much-needed window to the contemporary Tibetan short story for an international audience.”
—Leonard W.J. van der Kuijp, Professor of Tibetan and Himalayan Studies, Harvard University
