"[T]he book's heart really lies in the vicissitudes of personal experience, and the ethnographer's relationships with certain individuals. In this respect, the book properly takes its place among other recent works that center on the particularities of experience. Here the author's long fieldwork in Kodi serves her well." -- Indonesia
"The stories are beautifully told, and Hoskins makes it easy to enjoy them. …she is a very welcome guide, helping the reader follow the chains of metaphors that turn experience into poetry. Any student who has suffered through Saussure and Levi-Strauss deserves the pleasure of reading this book." -- The Journal of Asian Studies
