Set during the fall-out of the Cultural Revolution, these bizarre and delicate stories capture the collision of the old China of vanished dynasties, with communism and today's tiger economy. The mad woman on the bridge wears a historical gown which she refuses to take off. In the height of summer she stands madly on the bridge. Until a young female doctor, bewitched by the beauty of the mad woman's dress, plots to take it from her, with tragic consequences.

"What i admire most is Su Tong's style ...delicate yet bizarre. His strokes are restrained but merciless. He is a true literary talent." * Anchee Min * "Su Tong writes beautiful, dangerous prose." * Meg Wolitzer * "For RAISE THE RED LANTERN, 'A remarkable story, subtle and profound'" * The New York Times * "Sensual and tragic" * Sunday Times * "Su Tong's evocation of one family's destiny in 1930s China is stark and vivid in the extreme. A chilling and macabre tale, characteristically told with imagination and unflinching honesty" * Time Out *
