The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down is a stimulating adventure for any intelligent reader whose heart and mind are open to reaching beyond that which is familiar and understood. Against a backdrop of cultural mystery, tales of nations at war, an epoch of human misery, and a thundering clash of two worthy, well-intentioned cultures, a baby girl has epilepsy, and all who know her struggle to help her.
