Synopsis

The dreamlike story of a young woman in contemporary Beijing forging a different life for herself, from one of our brightest new literary stars.

One morning in autumn, just after breakfast, Jia Jia finds her husband dead in the bathtub of their Beijing apartment.

Next to him is a piece of folded paper, a sketch of a strange creature from his dream. He has left her no other sign. Young, alone, and with many unanswered questions, Jia Jia sets out on a journey. It takes her deep into her past where, for the very first time, she begins to have a sense of her future.

'An Yu writes with style and in a way that is hard to resist' Sunday Times

'A seductive, sharply observed tale of love, loss and hope' Daily Mail
