The blurb includes "----extraordinary memoir of a childhood in the remote mountain village----ancient world steeped in magic & superstition----mother & daughter discover that what they share---priceless beyond measure". Excellent account of Chinese rural life, a culture where women are undervalued and "possessed". Relationships, both close & estranged, sensitively described.

Caught the book lying around on a bench at the Finchley Rd station. Made my day to have a good book to read as I was on the tube for much of the day. I plan to release The Bonesetter's Daughter within the next week. Probably on a bus.
Great family story about how knowing your family doesn't determine who you become but is part of who you are.
Released it at Heathrow Terminal Three
