Description
"The latest novel by Larissa Lai, an epic yet intimate story set during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong during World War II Lambda Literary Award-winner Larissa Lai (The Tiger Flu) returns with a sprawling historical novel about war, colonialism, and queer experience during Japan's occupation of Hong Kong during World War II. On the eve of the return of the British Crown colony of Hong Kong to China in 1997, young Ophelia asks her peculiar great-aunt Violet about the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong during World War II and the disappearance of her uncle Raymond. From Violet, she learns the story of her grandmother, Emily. Emily's marriage to her father's mortal enemy causes a stir among three very different Hong Kong Chinese families, as well as among the young cricketers at the Hong Kong Cricket Club, who've just witnessed King Edward VIII's abdication to marry Wallis Simpson. But the class and race pettiness of the scandal around Emily's marriage is violently disrupted by the Japanese Imperial Army's invasion of Hong Kong on Christmas Day, 1941, which plunges the colony into a landscape of violence none of its inhabitants escape from unscathed, least of all Emily. When her situation becomes dire, Violet, along with a crew of unlikely cosmopolitans, determines to rescue Emily from the wrath of the person she thought loved her the most, her husband, Tak-Wing"--Provided by publisher.
