The great, stirring novel about love, death and sensuality was banned in China because of its permissiveness and authentic background - for Hong Ying the proof that female self-determination is still a taboo in her homeland. Full of grace, she tells of the passion between Julian Bell, Virginia Woolf's nephew, and the irresistible writer Lin. On the eve of the Second World War, both get caught up in the maelstrom of historical events and have to fight for their lives and love.
"Hong Ying's style is unusually precise, but it's precisely this severity that tears one's heart apart"
