产品描述

Twenty-something Coral and her Frisbee-obsessed boyfriend Red live in a cramped tower block in the megalopolis that is modern-day Beijing, living from day to day. Then a mysterious package arrives with a salted eel from the Village of Stone, a thousand miles away, and Coral’s unspoken past comes rushing back to her. Then a sick old man also arrives, and her past and present collide. This is Xiaolu Guo’s first novel to be published outside China, followed by A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers and Twenty Fragments of a Ravenous Youth. Now living in Britain, she is also an essayist and filmmaker.

“What could have been a story of misery has the mysterious charm of a fairy tale or legend. Reading it is rather like finding yourself in a dream, once upon a time.”
