Madwoman On The Bridge And Other Stories

Madwoman On The Bridge And Other Stories

By  Su Tong

From the bestselling Chinese author of RAISE THE RED LANTERN

Set during the fall-out of the Cultural Revolution, these bizarre and delicate stories capture the collision of the old China of vanished dynasties, with communism and today’s tiger economy. The mad woman on the bridge wears a historical gown which she refuses to take off. In the height of summer she stands madly on the bridge. Until a young female doctor, bewitched by the beauty of the mad woman’s dress, plots to take it from her, with tragic consequences.
