Maureen F. McHugh
Review by: Duane Simolke
Despite a virtual lack of plot or action, and
despite the constant change of location, I thoroughly enjoyed Maureen F.
McHugh's vision of the future. The homophobia of Communist regimes and
other oppressive mind-sets helped create the dramatic tension for
Zhang's character. This is imaginative writing from an author who
obviously cares more about language and character than about writing
something that most creative writing classes would use as a model for
"proper" novel structure. I cared deeply about these
characters, perhaps even more for the sympathetic and mistreated San-xiang
than for the narrator, but certainly for him as well.
