Book Description Lester & Orpen Dennys, Toronto, ON, 1988. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Canadian Edition. Small spot bottom page edges, light edge wear to dustjacket ; DJ in Mylar, bright, solid book ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 285 pages; "Poet Zhang Yonglin is sentenced to a labor camp he ironically describes as a haven amidst the hysteria of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. After he marries a woman he had seen eight years earlier, the story becomes, on one level, an analogy between his temporary sexual impotence and the postion of intellectuals. A year later he is ready to abandon his wife and escape from the camp. Cameo appearances by philosophic and literary figures Marx and Meng-tz, Othello and Song Jian discussing China and sex which allows the incorporation of non-novelistic elements while indulging in gallows humor. The references to Western culture and the translator's historical notes should make this complex and fascinating book easily accessible." This books states that it is a novel but it is a fictionalized account of the author's experiences. Bookseller Inventory # 12213
