Soul Mountain by Xingjian Gao
Soul Mountain

SusanJazzMonty, May 30, 2013

"Soul Mountain" is at once a lyrical, deep and mysterious novel. There are multiple stories embedded in the one allowing the reader to experience both ancient and modern China. The character development is sweet with a bit of harshness, just enough to remind the reader that the Chinese people have troubles that go beyond what we America can truly comprehend. This is one of the few books I can read again and again as with each reading there is an even greater understanding of the world getting to and living with the need for " Soul Mountain".
