“Chinese mythology is filled with tales of fish-women, erotic enchantresses who can disguise their scales, perhaps for generations, in order to lure the human men they love. These archetypal creatures have been re-imagined by Dutch-Chinese author Julie O’Yang in her fascinating new book Butterfly: A Novel, and they exist in a world that incorporates the modernity of Shanghai with memories of the Nanking massacre and the romantic and sexual torments of a young doctor.”
A new review is up by Austalian writer, scholar & dreamer Walter Mason. Read http://www.waltermason.com/2012/05/review-butterfly-novel-by-julie-oyang.html.
