192 pages, 4 plates, cloth, dj, ex-library with usual library markings otherwise very good. From the publisher: "This hauntingly beautiful book is the memoir of a foreigner growing up in China in the 1920s and 1930s. The place is Tientsin - in English - The Ford of Heaven, a city peopled by expatriates of the many nations who claimed concessions after the Opium War of 1860. Among them are Russians, British, French and Japanese. Brian Power tells his story as if he were unfolding a Chinese handscroll with a rich variety of figures in a winding landscape. In the market, the deaf and dumb storyteller mimed tales of medieval warlords; the hidden floating villages that the young Power visits and loves; the trial of concubines kept by a rich schoolfellow's father; the selling of daughters by starving parents; kilted Scottish soldiers parading for the pleasure of a deposed Chinese boy Emperor; and the melancholy Jesuit Father Tiehard de Chardin visiting for tea. Against this backdrop, a young boy is raised mainly by his Chinese nanny. With her help he begins to unravel the mosaic of oriental thought and spirit.". N° de réf. du libraire 20144
