A beautiful account of twenty years in the life of a Chinese artist who was a visionary and a catalyst for political change during a time when ideology shifted weekly. As an avid reader of Asian historical fiction, I found that Jennifer Epstein's prose and attention to detail ranked with Lisa See or even Amy Tan. I highly recommend this book for book clubs and anyone who enjoys Asian historical fiction.
