Summary
"In Memory of the Departed" In this gripping tale of love, betrayal and revolution, Chen Danyan takes the reader on an extraordinary journey through the complexities wrought by history on a mother, her daughter and their circle of friends in Shanghai during the tumultuous years between 1944 and 1978. Chen Danyan's moving descriptions bring to life the hardships of post-war China as well as the difficulty of making sense in a world whose moral, political and social boundaries were shifting with impossible speed. Recounted through the often painful recollections of her family, friends, neighbors and colleagues, Yao Yao's life runs a parallel course to the complicated and often tumultuous political coming of age of China. Yao Yao's mother's glamorous life in the world of the theatre becomes one of questioned loyalties, treachery and real danger during a dark political time in Shanghai. Yao Yao's own tragic story is unraveled through the voices of her past
