9780060596330: Raise the Red Lantern: Three Novellas

The girl had always been called Taya. Her companion Kort had always been with her. She accepted these things, and why not? They were her world. But Taya wondered why everything she could see beyond the window was so different from all the things inside. She also wondered why the stars never changed if her world was really moving the way her metal friend Kort said it was....Could Kort be wrong? That would be very strange, because Kort knew everything, and he was sure they and the world were moving -- just as she was sure the stars were not. Then one day, when Taya was 12, the World was born anew...."Pure science fiction....Arthur Clarke, move over". -- Isaac Asimov

Book Description HarperCollins, United States, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Perennial ed.. 200 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The brutal realities of the dark places Su Tong depicts in this collection of novellas set in 1930s provincial China -- worlds of prostitution, poverty, and drug addiction -- belie his prose of stunning and simplebeauty. The title novella, Raise the Red Lantern, which became a critically acclaimed film, tells the story of Lotus, a young woman whose father s suicide forces her to become the concubine of a wealthy merchant. Crushed by loneliness, despair, and cruel treatment, Lotus finds her descent into insanity both a weapon and a refuge. Nineteen Thirty-Four Escapes is an account of a family s struggles during one momentous year; plagued by disease, death, and the shady promise of life in a larger town, the family slowly disintegrates.Finally, Opium Family details the last years of a landowning clan whose demise is brought about by corruption, lust, and treachery -- fruits of the insidious crop they harvest.
