Product Description

Review

"The First English Publication of this important novel... [is] a major event in the scholarly community of Chinese literary studies." -- Sung-Sheng Yvonne Chang, University of Texas, Austin --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

Set in post-1949 Taiwan, this novel is an intimate revelation of a family's journey to catastrophe. The rather of the all-too-ordinary Fan family suddenly flees from home; his son, Fan Yeh, sets off to search for him but is repeatedly unsuccessful, returning alone to the anxiously waiting mother. As it tracks Fan Yeh's fruitless search, Wang Wen-hsing's innovative narrative unfolds the history of this family, depicting relationships both tender and brutal and divulging secrets of poverty and abuse, love and hate.
