From the Publisher
Annotation A bizarre accident leaves a piece of glass in a Chinese man's brain, disconnecting his language center and rendering him incapable of speaking anything but snatches of English obscurely embedded in his memory. The terrible condition estranges Li Jing from his cherished wife in THE LOST AND FORGOTTEN LANGUAGES OF SHANGHAI, Ruiyan Xu's unusual novel about love and the tenuous thread of words that ties us together. When Li's wife seeks help from a Western specialist unused to life in China, patient and doctor find a bond in their different but mutual disorientations.
Editors Note A sensitive exploration of the power of words and of silence, The Lost and Forgotten Languages of Shanghai is a wonderfully evocative debut about love and language, duty and passion, in a vibrant modern city.
