GELING YAN 严歌苓
paperback

Geling Yan traces the lives of two individuals separated by prejudice and mistrust, but bound forever by their passion for one another. Fusang is a Chinese girl shanghaied from her village in China, brought to California and sold into the seedy underworld of prostitution. Soon she falls into an obsessive relationship with a young boy, Chris. But many barriers are laid between the lovers – by Chris’s wealthy family, and most menacingly by Fusang’s murderous pimp, who bestrides Chinatown with a clutch of daggers at his waist.
