This extraordinary novel recounts the dual lives and split personalities of one young woman. Mulberry has fled the turmoil of postwar China to settle in the United States, though she continues to relive the trials she endured in China and is fearful to leave the small space that shelters her. Unable to resolve the conflicts between her new life and her old, she develops a second personality: fearless, tough-talking, sexually uninhibited Peach. Stylistically innovative, "Mulberry and Peach" offers a compelling portrait of the psychological and cultural dislocations of an immigrant's life.

Industry Reviews

A disquieting study of psychological and cultural schizophrenia . . . perceptive and powerful." --Publishers Weekly "Seldom has a Chinese work of fiction so felicitously yoked together elements of symbolism, poetry, historical reconstruction, fantasy--and language so taut with tension that the protagonists' destinies seem to hinge on a word play, and a nation's future is betrayed by an allegory." --Asiaweek "The conflict between Mulberry and Peach--the dual personalities locked within the heroine--symbolizes the conflict that has faced all those Chinese whose lives have been disrupted by the great political upheavals of modern China." --People's Daily, China
