“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
