With the hope of uniting women around the world, Jasemin Sibo and her contributors share a self-liberating collection of short, true stories that provide a witty, wickedly honest representation of all those who have walked and tripped unceremoniously while falling in and out of love.
Sibo, who does not profess to be an expert in the much sought-after art of breakup survival, begins by sharing her own recollections of past encounters with categorically different types of men and the invaluable lessons she learned after the end of each relationship. From chronicling her first love experiences with a country bumpkin in a foreign country to the temptations she faced during the one-year itch and the ups and downs of an office affair, Sibo transforms each sob story into poignant reflections that will inspire other women to trust their intuitions, shun temptations, and embrace normalcy. Included are true stories from several plucky contributors who also share their own lessons that teach others to have faith in first impressions, warning signs, and most importantly, themselves.
A collection of true stories that transforms romantic misfortunes into positive, life-altering lessons for any woman who has ever given her heart to a man.

HennaHenna पीतातिरक्त: La Danseuse du Cambodge (The Dancer from Cambodia)

In a series of narrative poems, Henna पीतातिरक्त: The Dancer from Cambodia travels back in time to the Golden Indochine era in the year 800 and goes forward to the mid-1970s, during a time of upheaval in Southeast Asia.

In ancient times, various kingdoms ruled the countries we now call Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar and Peninsular Malaysia. Gigantic elephants served mighty kings, and mythical celestial nymphs danced for gods. Dancers called apsaras were believed to be part human and part angel, possessing exquisite beauty and grace. They served as the Royal Cambodian ballerinas and had the ability to change forms at will. One such dancer named Henna is thought to be a goddess reincarnated. As she grows into a beautiful young lady, she faces many challenges and threats that force her to choose between good and evil. Then, as she lives on through the centuries, she sees the change that occurs in her beloved Cambodia—including the coming of the Khmer Rouge in 1975, when nearly all the country’s artists were wiped out.

These narrative poems present a story of the human spirit, exploring Cambodian history, celebrating the ancient performing arts, and overcoming evil with love and grace.
