Description

Ai-Ming tells the story of her family in revolutionary China, from the crowded teahouses in the first days of Chairman Mao's ascent and the events leading to the Beijing demonstrations of 1989. It is a history of revolutionary idealism, music and silence, in which three musicians, the shy and brilliant composer Sparrow, the violin prodigy Zhuli and the enigmatic pianist Kai, struggle during China's relentless Cultural Revolution to remain loyal to one another; and to the music they have devoted their lives to.

Professional reviews

"This is the story of a young woman who fled China in the aftermath of the Tiananmen Square protests. Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2016. “A magnificent epic of Chinese history, richly detailed and beautifully written.” KATE SAUNDERS, THE TIMES. “Full of wisdom and complexity, comedy and beauty, Thien has delivered a novel that is both hugely political and severe, but at the same time delicate and intimate.” KATE WHITING, HERALD."
