Farewell, My Concubine by Lilian Lee

This is the book one of my very favorite movies is based on. I was looking for a rich text that the movie implies to me. I didn't find it. Lee's writing style is very simple, even a bit more "telling" than I like.*

Nonetheless, I found the book enjoyable. It is enough the same as the movie see what she doesn't describe. I also like the ending better than the movie's ending. The ending in the movie is perhaps more dramatic, but in the book the ending is more real.

*It is possible that it is the translation that is flat, rather than Lee's style.

I see a world where all people accept each other as friends and neighbors, and celebrate each person's uniqueness as a vital part of everyone's life, like threads in a tapestry. -F. Shafer Junaid
