About this title

Synopsis:

On a twenty-second-century Earth and Mars dominated by global Chinese hegemony, extraordinary individuals struggle to find their place in their cracking world order.

Review:

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.
