Synopsis:

Lin Kong is a devoted doctor in love with a modern young woman--a nurse who is educated, clever, and vivid. The only complication is the wife to whom he was married when they were very young--a tiny woman, humble and touchingly loyal, whom he visits in order to ask, again and again, for divorce.


Review:

"Fluidly written, the novel is strangely inert in the beginning as it focuses on Lin and Manna's inaction and inability to move forward with their romance. But the pace picks up in the book's final third, as Lin's waiting comes to an end and he navigates the aftermath of his divorce."

Pui-Wing Tam, Wall Street Journal, 10/22/1999

Review:

"Jin...has drawn a portrait of Chinese provincial life that terrifies with its emptiness even more than with its all-pervasive vulgarity. The poet in him intersperses these human scenes with achingly beautiful vignettes of natural beauty....Nothing, Jin is saying, has really changed between new and old China: It's just gotten nastier and, well, yes, more materialistic."

Peter Green, Los Angeles Times Book Review, 10/24/1999
