WINNER OF THE 2010 MAN ASIAN LITERARY PRIZE

From the petty treachery of the village to the slogans of the Cultural Revolution and the harried pace of city life, three sisters strive to change the course of their destinies in a China that does not truly belong to them. Yumi, the eldest, struggles to retain dignity as her ideal marriage falters. Yuxiu relies on her talent for seduction. And, Yuyang, the youngest, lays her hope in her own intelligence, securing the education that her sisters were denied. A breathtaking account of the challenges facing women in Communist China and of the bonds and ruptures of sisterhood.

Gelesen für die 1 Jahr= 1 Land Challenge für CHINA.

Ich fand das Buch ziemlich bedrückend. Es stellt den Irrsinn in der Zeit der Kulturrevolution und deren Auswirkungen auf den Alltag ganz gut dar. Deutlich wird auch, wie stark in dem geschilderten Umfeld das Schicksal der Frauen von den Männern abhängt und das diese sich im Grunde alles nehmen können, was sie haben wollen. Einen gewissen Einfluß auf ihren Weg haben die Frauen schon, aber im Grunde genommen ist er gering...und jede von ihnen scheitert auf ihre Weise, selbst dann, wenn es nach einem Gewinn aussieht.
