Praise
"A luminous, self-contained, fluid world in which history, legend, and a religious quest create a portrait of an age--the glittering high noon of the Manchurian empire."
"Once again Jeanne Larsen has woven a rich and beguiling tale--a magical tapestry of myth, history, and irresistible characters. 'Manchu Palaces' is absolutely wonderful."
"Readers will be amply satisfied by 'Manchu Palaces'. Jeanne Larsen is a gifted storyteller, evoking the grandeur and complexity of imperial China with rare skill and grace. A deep stillness lies at the center of this book, and a heightened sense of life's mystery and sacredness. Her language is sparkling and limpid--the perfect medium for this adventurous tale."
From the Publisher
Annotation Lotus is servant to the Empress Dowager during the Manchurian period in China. Readers travel with her along a spiritual path through the Forbidden City, through erotic fantasy to the miracle of the mandala. In this fabulist tale, we encounter figures from all eras of history, Eastern challenges to Western ideas, details of daily life of the time, and a Buddhist exploration of the sensual and sexual world.
First Line I can't forget her.
