    For more than 17 years, Lin Kong has been in love with an educated, modern woman, Manna Wu. But back in the traditional world of his home village lives the wife his family chose for him when he was young - a touchingly loyal woman, whom he repeatedly visits in order to ask for a divorce. In a culture in which the ancient ties of tradition and family still hold sway and where adultery discovered by the Party can ruin lives forever, Lin's love is stretched taut by the passing years.

    From the remarkable Ha Jin, winner of the National Book Award for his celebrated novel Waiting, comes this collection of comical and deeply moving tales of contemporary China that are as warm and human as they are surprising, disturbing, and delightful. In the title story, the head of security at a factory is shocked, first when the handsomest worker on the floor proposes marriage to his homely adopted daughter, and again when his new son-in-law is arrested for the "crime" of homosexuality.
