The Red Chamber by Pauline A. Chen
The Red Chamber

oberlin_reader, July 14, 2012

You will live and breathe through these characters; feel the cool brush of silk against your skin, see the enclosed beauties of the lush garden where the Jia youth welcome their young unknown cousin, Daiyu, from the country. The book is full of the poetry of that world, and the perversity of fate as their young lives play out. By the end, you won't want to let any of it go.
