“Charmaine Craig's Miss Burma is nothing short of stunning. Based on the lives of her mother and grandparents in Burma, Craig deftly tells the epic story of one family as they try to survive the horrors of World War II, independence, and then civil war. What distinguishes this book from others is its frank look at who and what survives under such perilous conditions. Especially for readers unfamiliar with Burma, like me, Miss Burma is a chronicle of loss and love in a country too long neglected by the world.”
— Michael Triebwasser, Politics & Prose Books and Coffee Shop, Washington, DC

Summer 2018 Reading Group Indie Next List

Miss Burma is an ambitious and heartbreaking novel about a multicultural family in Burma as World War II enters their country. From the 1940s through the civil war of the 1950s and ’60s, the family’s circumstance ranges from prosperity to refugee status to prisoners, while each member of the family struggles with issues of love, loyalty, and identity. The novel is all the more amazing in that it is based on the true story of the author’s own parents and grandparents.”
— Stan Hynds, Northshire Bookstore, Manchester Center, VT
