Then she meets an Englishman who changes everything, leading her into a world of self-discovery. She soon realizes that, in the West, love does not always mean the same as in China, and that you can learn all the words in the English language and still not understand your lover. And as the novel progresses with steadily improving grammar and vocabulary, Zs evolving voice makes her quest for comprehension all the more poignant.

With sparkling wit, Xiaolu Guo has created an utterly original novel about identity and the cultural divide. From the Trade Paperback edition.
