Read in August, 2009

An interesting parallel between "old" China and "new" China. The characters struggle with who they are and their "station" in life. The book jumps between stories and throughout the timeline. The writing was interesting, but just a little too much sexual content for my taste. The Binding Chair didn't add much to my knowledge of this time period. The ending of the book left me feeling empty and sort of wishing I'd never read the book at all.
