About this book
Guardian & Observer reviews
A beautiful, haunting story of one little girl's struggle to endure silence, solitude and the shame of sexual abuse, but this book 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. *Also appeared in April Buyer's Notes*
Coral and her frisbee-obsessed boyfriend, Red live on the ground floor of a cramped tower block in the megalopolis that is Beijing. The very epitome of disaffected, unfulfilled youth, their already fragile existence is shattered by the arrival of a mysterious fishy package. This novel is about memory, loss and the search for redemption.
