Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In poised and elegant prose, Kathryn Harrison weaves a stunning story of women, travel, and flight; of love, revenge, and fear; of the search for home and the need to escape it. Set in alluring Shanghai at the turn of the century, The Binding Chair intertwines the destinies of a Chinese woman determined to forget her past and a Western girl focused on the promises of the future.

Synopsis:

A young Chinese woman with brutally bound feet becomes a unexpected celebrity who connects with a variety of women who've all suffered a disfigurement, mental or physical, that echoes her own.
