This 1993 winner of the James Tiptree Jr. Award focuses on Zhang Zhong Shan, a young engineer in a U.S. dominated by a hugely successful Marxist China. The fact that he's gay in an era where homosexuality is punishable by death, and that he's only half Asian--his mother was Hispanic, but his parents had his genes altered to suppress his ancestry--add to his frustration and feelings of oppression. When he loses his place in the social labor system, Zhang moves to Shanghai and finds work within a Marxist system whose injustices he recognizes and whose delusions he resists. Using the resources available, Zhang struggles to shape a place for himself, and manages to affect the lives of others in the process.About the Author:
With her first novel, China Mountain Zhang, Maureen McHugh established herself as a major writer of humanist SF, one of the most distinctive and talented to emerge this decade.
