Main description:

These six stories by Nobel Prize winner Gao Xingjian transport the reader to moments where the fragility of love and life, and the haunting power of memory, are beautifully unveiled. In "The Temple," the narrator's acute and mysterious anxiety overshadows the delirious happiness of an outing with his new wife on their honeymoon. In "The Cramp," a man narrowly escapes drowning in the sea, only to find that no one even noticed his absence. In the titlestory, the narrator attempts to relieve his homesickness only to find that he is lost in a labyrinth of childhood memories.

Everywhere in this collection are powerful psychological portraits of characters whose unarticulated hopes and fears betray the never-ending presence of the past in their present lives.

Review quote:

“[Gao’s] narrators walk as if in a dream through a private landscape of memory and sensation.”

Review quote:

“Beautiful.”

Review quote:

“Dreamlike … the force of Gao’s imagination is spellbinding.”

Review quote:

“For all their elusiveness, these impressionistic sketches have an austere power”

Review quote:

“Precisely detailed and delicately suggestive: the best work of Gao’s yet to appear in English translation.”

Review quote:

“These spare, evocative pieces … offer a sample of Nobel -winner Gao’s sharp, poetic early work.”
