From the TALK series, Encountering Asia
Discussion Leader: Kim Stanley

Jin provides a moving, but disturbing view of Cultural Revolution-era China and human frailties. Lin Kong, a doctor whose duties separate him from his arranged-marriage wife, falls in love with Manna. Lin's wife won't agree to divorce. Thus he is "waiting" the 18 years before he can divorce without her consent. 308 pp.
