Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A young boy living in China at the outbreak of World War II is separated from his wealthy parents, forced to forage for survival in Shanghai's foreign quarter, interned in a Japanese prison camp, and, eventually, reunited with his family, in a new edition of the award-winning autobiographical novel.


Review:

"Ballard's most perfect work....[and] one of the great novels of our time, with something of the brutal beauty found in the fiction of Cormac McCarthy."

Michael Dirda, Washington Post, 09/17/2009
