Reviews

Beautiful and compelling * Daily Mail *
Dreamy and beautifully written... Reading it will take you into a different world altogether * Marie Claire *
A deliciously comic novel * The Times *
Imagine if Romeo and Juliet had been made to stretch out their passion for 18 years, without consummating their love. Now imagine them in China during the crazy bureaucracy of Mao's Cultural Revolution, unable to talk in private let alone kiss...the insights into Chinese culture and the complexities of human longing are beautiful and compelling * Daily Mail *
A classic folktale...an extraordinary novel * Independent *
