"A first English-language translation of a best-selling book by the Chinese Writers Association president traces the lives of four women in China from their shared childhoods during the Cultural Revolution to adulthood in the new market economy of the 1990s, from children's book editor Tiao and her America-idealising sister Fan to the self-destructive hedonist Fei and the chef Youyou."
