Summary
The acclaimed novelist's award-winning memoir of growing up in a remote Chinese fishing village is "a rich and insightful coming-of-age story" (Kirkus). The acclaimed author of A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers and I Am China, Xiaolu Guo grew up an unwanted child in a poor fishing village on the East China Sea. But a Taoist monk made a startling prediction to her grandmother: that Guo would prove herself to be a peasant warrior and grow up to travel the nine continents. In Nine Continents, Guo tells the story of a curious mind coming of age in an inhospitable country, and her determination to seek a life beyond the limits of its borders. From her family's village to a rapidly changing Beijing, to a life beyond China, Nine Continents presents a fascinating portrait of how the Cultural Revolution shaped families, and how the country's economic ambitions have given rise to great change. This "moving and often exhilarating" memoir confirms Xiaolu Guo as one of world literature's most urgent voices (Financial Times, UK)
