Where Waters Meet by Zhang Ling Review
Where Waters Meet written by Zhang Ling which was published in 01 May 2023. You can read this before Where Waters Meet PDF EPUB full Download at the bottom. Having read many of Zhang Ling’s previous novels in Chinese, I came to Where Waters Meet, her first book written in English, with an open mind and really didn’t know what to expect. For the first dozens or so pages, I was in constant awe of her poetic prose, which has the same vivid intensity as in her native tongue. My awe over the language was soon overtaken by the engrossing tale itself. For the remainder of my reading, the prose felt almost transparent, like the thematic water carrying her story forward. For those who have read her last book – A Single Swallow, a revisit to the secret warehouse site outside of Wenzhou city, Zhang’s hometown, following the Japanese air raid and brutal invasion in 1944, would feel very familiar. That time and place seems to be the epicenter of the author’s mythic imagining, a sort of Macondo where her stories of intersecting lives spring forward. I like how Zhang uses the structure of email correspondence and edited manuscripts to tell the story, allowing us to unravel the family secrets together with the narrator, while also giving the space to foreshadow crucial moments in email references that precede the manuscripts. The trauma is experienced both with present tense immediacy through the mother in the manuscript, and through the shock and sense of loss, dulled by time and displacement, of the daughter who writes it. It is a powerful story expertly told.
Brief Summary of the Book
This is the first book Zhang has written in English. She says that Chinese is her first language and she could express herself better in Chinese. The prose in this book is beautiful; her use of the English language is excellent, and almost poetic. Her description of peoples’ thoughts and actions is tight and in places heart-rending. At first glance, this is another story of an adult who discovers her mother has a past she didn’t know about. Determining truth from fiction plays a major role in the book as the story of the mother’s life is unpeeled one layer at a time with surprises in every layer. It also a book about how women in Chinese culture and the Chinese diaspora culture relate to each other, to the men in their lives and to the world. You may also like You Look Beautiful Tonight by L.
