Riassunto: A 1930s Shanghai case of a woman who murdered her husband inspired Li Ang to write this deep and harrowing novel that was an outrageous literary sensation. In a small coastal Taiwanese town, the pig butcher's brutality towards his new young wife knows no bounds. She becomes scorned by her neighbors who condemn her for screaming aloud. Lin Shin, isolated, despairing, is finally driven to madness and kills him with his own meat cleaver. ""May be the most frightening book ever written about women oppressed by men""--Los Angeles Times.
About the Author: Li Ang was born in Taiwan in 1952. After graduating from college in Taiwan she studied drama in the United States in the 1970s. Her fiction is critical of traditional Chinese culture and controversial for its portrayal of cultural superstition, violence, and brutally abusive sexuality.

Descrizione libro Peter Owen, 2002. Softcover / Paperback. Condizione libro: Fine. Paperback. A novel based on a true case. Tr. from the Chinese by Howard Goldblatt and Ellen Yeung. In traditional Chinese society, any woman who kills her husband is presumed to have done so for adulterous purposes. In 1930s Shanghai a case came to light where a woman dismembered her husband. There was no evidence that the woman had ever had a lover. This inspired the author to write a deep and harrowing novel that challenged this demeaning attitude toward the moral character of women that has been held by Chinese for thousands of years: any woman guilty of killing her husband is a promiscuous woman and no other interpretation is possible. At time of publication in Taiwan in 1983, the book aroused controversy because of its vivid portrayal of sexual violence and emotional cruelty. 142pp. p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. with no creasing to covers. Codice libro della libreria 16072
