Publisher’s Synopsis (2005 edition)
Huamei Han, whose poetic English feels like Mandarin, sets her stories in China after the Cultural Revolution.
The young narrator, Lin Yongxue (Sing the Snow’s Praise), searches out glints of tenderness as she toughens herself to the daily brutalities of life among people who dare not ask for more than the body’s survival.
