About This Item

New York: Anchor Books, June 2006. Trade Paperback. First Paperback Edition / full number line. Interior pristine. Spine straight, tight and uncreased. Covers clean and bright. Slight edgewear. v + 287 pages.

A rapturous and uproarious collision of East and West, a novel about the dream of love and the love of dreams. Fresh from 11 years in Paris studying Freud, bookish Mr. Muo returns to China to spread the gospel of psychoanalysis. His secret purpose is to free his college sweetheart from prison. To do so he has to get on the good side of the bloodthirsty Judge Di, and to accomplish that he must provide the judge with a virgin maiden. This may prove difficult in a China that has embraced western sexual mores along with capitalism-especially since Muo, while indisputably a romantic, is no ladies' man.

Synopsis

Dai Sijie is a Chinese-born filmmaker and novelist who has lived and worked in France since 1984. His first novel, Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress, was an overnight sensation; it spent twenty-three weeks on the New York Times best-seller list.
