Synopses & Reviews
Chinese edition of The Harmony Silk Factory, winner of the 2005 Whitbread Awards for First Novel Award by Tash Aw. The character Johnny Lim is portrayed from three perspectives - his only son, his wife and his only friend's - after his death but not all reliably. This novel has the aura of Sound an Fury with its multiple historical urgency in the 1940's during which Lim could have become a communist leader, a Japanese informant, a successful businessman, son of a poor laborer...
