The Garden of Evening Mists
Tan Twan Eng
In common with Tan's highly successful first novel, The Gift of Rain, which was long listed for the Booker Prize, this new work, although set in the Malaya of the 'Emergency', has links with the Second World War and with Japanese culture. Yun Ling Teoh, the survivor of brutal treatment by the Japanese during the war attempts to heal herself through constructing a Japanese garden in the cool climate of the Cameron Highlands. To do this she needs the help of the exiled gardener of the Emperor of Japan. The relationship between both develops as they tussle with attraction to, need of and antipathy towards each other.351 pages.
