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.
L'autore: 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.
