Questions of Heaven

(1997)
A non fiction book by

 
A Haunting pilgrimage to one of China's holy mountains
"Ehrlich . . . writes with tremendous grace and passion."
- Miles Harvey, Outside

"In spare, lyrical prose, Ehrlich inventively recounts her 1995 spiritual trip to China and Tibet. . . . Like one of the landscape paintings of which she writes, Ehrlich's book is at once delicate, deeply considered and moving."
- Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Ehrlich's highly personal travelogue centers on her attempt to find what remains of [the] once-flourishing spiritual culture in the sacred mountains of western China. . . . [Ehrlich] intersperses her personal narrative with bits of the intellectual, political, historical and spiritual."
- Alexandra Hall, The New York Times Book Review

"If Questions of Heaven has a message, it may reside in the author's belief in a bond across geography and generations, one transcending space and time."
- David L. Ulin, The Village Voice

"This is travel writing at its best." - Glenn Masuchika, Library Journal
