No Time for Dreams narrates a remarkable woman's search for independence and purpose over four decades while repression spreads in Burma and the shadow of military rule lengthens. Inspired by the legacy of her father Ba Tin's struggle against British colonialism beginning in the 1930s, San San Tin infuses her journey from school girl to journalist and poet with an unbroken spirit of resistance. Offering the first insider's view of politics, culture, religion, and family over nearly half a century of unrelenting dictatorship, this riveting personal story traces an arc of decline to reveal the bitter fate of the once-prosperous and cosmopolitan society known in the past as the Golden Land.
