Synopsis

Is fada muid ag fanacht ar chéad mhórshaothar próis seo Chathal Uí Shearcaigh. Cur síos atá ann ar a chuid taistil i Neipeal, agus léirítear ann an gean atá aige ar an tír agus ar a phobal.

Cuirtear tús leis an leabhar in Kathmandu, an phríomhchathair, agus tá cur síos dathannach, fileata déanta ag an Searcach uirthi agus is iomaí scéal saoithiúil atá aige dúinn faoin gcathair chéanna.

Fágann Gúrú na gCnoc an chathair ina dhiaidh ansin agus téann sé ar aistear fisiciúil agus ar aistear spioradálta trí gharbhchríocha Neipeal. Bíonn idir ghreann agus ghaois i ndán dó ar an turas. Tugtar le fios dó, mar shampla, nach maith an sloinne atá air, mar go gciallaíonn sé gur d'ísealaicme na ngréasaithe é!

Is tarraingteach an leabhar é seo, leis, le grianghraif áille agus dánta.

This travel diary is Cathal Ó Searcaigh's long-awaited first major prose work. The book describes the charismatic Donegal poet's travels through Nepal, and uncovers his growing love affair with the country and its people.

The book begins in the bustling capital of Kathmandu, and the author's poetic descriptions bring to life this colourful city of contrasts and many of his experiences there will bring a smile to the reader's lips.

The Guru of the Hills, as Cathal is known, then leaves the capital and begins a spiritual and physical journey through the mountains of Nepal and the characters that he meets along the way light up the pages of the book.

The book is beautifully produced, and includes stunning photos, as well as poems by the author.
