“One of the most original and talented novelists writing in Spanish today.” — Alberto Manguel

With sensuous imagery and musical cadence, renowned Oulipian Eduardo Berti conjures an exquisite, star-crossed love story in pre-revolutionary China. The desires of a young girl, visited in her dreams by her grandmother’s ghost, clash with the strict expectations of her parents, exploring the delicate balance between modernity and tradition, mysticism and memory.
