9780099459071: Village Of Stone

Village of Stone brilliantly evokes the harshness of life on the typhoon-battered coast of China, where fishermen are often lost to violent seas and children regularly swept away. It is the beautiful, haunting story of one little girl's struggle to endure silence, solitude and the shame of sexual abuse, but it is also an incisive portrait of China's new urban youth, who have hidden behind their modern lifestyle all the poverty and cruelty of their past.

Review:

"A refreshing departure from much of the recent Chinese fiction to reach these shores. The language has the pared-down simplicity of a fable; the effect is a bit like that of a Haruki Murakami novel" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Open this book and you will see a Chinese girl stepping towards you out of China's past and into its present, with all her dreams and striving" (Xinran)

"Exquisitely written and intricately contructed" ( Independent)

"Reading it is rather like finding yourself in a dream: "once upon a time..." People are going to like this book very much... What could have been a misery of a story has the mysterious charm of a fairy tale or a legend" (Doris Lessing)

From the Publisher:
