Book Review

I had a book review published in the most recent issue of the Journal of Asian Studies (Volume 73, Issue 04 (for those of you keeping track)) on this amazing book:

Buddhist Storytelling in Thailand and Laos: The Vessantara Scroll at the Asian Civilisations Museum by Leedom Lefferts and Sandra Cate, with Wajuppa Tossa, published by University of Hawai'i Press, 2012.

This is a beautiful book--large format mate-finish hardcover that is chock full of amazing full-color prints and top-notch scholarship. I'm not going to go on about it here, cause you can just read the review below. I will simply say that you should buy this book. You will not be disappointed!
