Riassunto: What if you were told a devastating secret, a secret that had been guarded from you for thirty years, which shattered your view of your family and your marriage forever? Bilingual writer Annabel Annuo Liu chose to bury the secret and maintain the family façade. More than twenty years later, however, struggling to make sense of her life, she wrote her tenth book, the second volume of her memoirs. Unflinchingly candid and powerful, Under the Towering Tree: A Daughter?s Memoir is a story within a story. It depicts the startling and heartbreaking family intrigue lurking beneath Liu?s seemingly calm, content, and well-established life. Spanning four generations and two cultures, it is a portrait of a marriage, a family psychological drama, a mystery story, and a survivor?s tale.
L'autore: Annabel Annuo Liu was born in Shanghai, China. She graduated from National Taiwan University with a B.A. in law and from the University of Missouri with an M.A. in journalism. A bilingual writer, she has published My Years as Chang Tsen: Two Wars, One Childhood in English and eight collections of literary essays and short stories in Chinese. She wrote feature stories, in-depth interviews, and columns for various newspapers and magazines in this country, including the Iowa Des Moines Register. Liu won a Dahua Evening News literary essay contest and two Liang Shiqiu literature translation competitions. A recipient of several Iowa Press Women awards, including a first prize for her cover story in the Sunday Register?s Picture Magazine, she also taught journalism at Iowa State University in Ames and University of Tennessee in Knoxville.
