Three sisters struggle to change the course of their destinies in a China that does not belong to them. Yumi uses her dignity, Yuxiu her seductive powers, and Yuyang her desire for success. This breathtaking story vividly captures the demonic desire for power that possesses people. Whether it's in the village of the Wang family, where life is attuned to the rhythm of working the fields and the slogans of the cultural revolution, or in the Peking of the 1980s, not one of these women is prepared to be just another wave in the 'infinite ocean of people'. It is an epic portrayal of life in modern China.

Bi Feiyu makes it real and believable in this charming, surprising novel.' Washington Post 'One of China's best contemporary novelists, Bi Feiyu has created an insightful portrait of China during the past half a century with a tale both epic and intimate. Three Sisters is an important novel.' Yiyun Li, author of THE VAGRANTS 'A thrilling family epic that depicts China's dispossessed longings and love' Xiaolu Guo, author of A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers 'A valuable document to aid our understanding of daily life as it is carried on in recent times of terror.'
