Silk Road: A Novel of Eighth-Century China - Jeanne Larsen

  • Pages: 434
  • Good condition

Fairy tale and myth entwine in this gently humorous fantasy set in ancient China. Greenpearl is seven when she is stolen by bandits and sold to a genteel house of prostitution. She escapes and embarks on a quest to rescue her mother from the realm of the Dragon Monarch in Cavegarden Lake. The goddesses and gods, behaving like celestial bureaucrats, barter favors amongst themselves to assist Greenpearl; despite their bumbling and the obscure form their aid takes, eventually she and the companions she gathers in her travels manage to fulfill their destinies in unexpected ways. The author, a translator of Chinese verse, has cleverly blended feminism, Chinese history and myth, and beautiful language in an enjoyable, exotic fantasy.
