Set during Mao's re-education era, this polished jewel of a novel is a profound and humbling reminder of how quickly all that we take for granted can be lost... yet also asks: is anything fully lost? and contemplates the power of literature beside our own human courage and frailty.  -- Jackie

PAT SAYS:   "A deep, evocative story about fathers & sons, marriage, and mystery. About life pared down to the nitty-gritty, to what's truly important. I love Stevie Kallos' work. I wish everyone could read this book."
