Again Ama lowered her forehead to the floor, this time to honor the portraits of the yellow Buddhas gazing in serene benevolence from above the altar. When all these formalities were finally over, Lama Ruhi sat himself on a large red cushion while my mother knelt in front of him, on the bare floor, and politely joined her hands together with her fingers pointing up toward heaven and her thumbs touching her heart. Uncle Lama, how is your health? she asked.

Leaving Mother Lake book. Yang Erche Namu grew up in an isolated area of the Himalayas where relationships play out rather differently than most of the world considers to be the norm. For the Moso (also spelled Mosuo), matriarchs rule, and individual couples do not move into houses of their own; instead, male lovers visit their female lovers at night for as long as both are amenable, and all children stay with their mother.

Namu, now a famous singer, wrote this memoir with the help of Christine Mathieu, an expert on the Moso people and their history.

The Tibetans refer to Moso country as "The Country of Daughters" because of their unique matrilineal society. In Moso culture, daughters are favoured children. There is no word for father, marriage is considered a backward practice and property is passed on from mother to daughter. This book is the haunting memoir of a girl growing up in a remarkable place. In her village, Namu was known as the girl whose mother tried to give her away three times because she would not stop crying. The strong-willed Namu clashed with her equally fierce mother, becoming alienated from village life. When Chinese officials came looking for talented singers, she seized her chance and broke the taboo that holds Moso culture together - she left her mother's house. Winning a place at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music as a special minority student, Namu became "the Madonna of Tibet", singing on the soundtrack of "The Joy Luck Club". A lyrical combination of anthropology and memoir, this is a story full of surprise, drama and beauty. It is a universal tale of mothers and daughters - the battles that drive them apart and the love that brings them back together.
