Description
This novel by the author of The Joy Luck Club and The Bonesetter's Daughter pulls a facade of Buddhist magician's tricks and absurd comedy over a morality tale about the consequences of intentions. On an ill-fated expedition to find art objects in the Shan state of southern Burma, 11 Americans leave the Floating Island Resort for a Christmas morning tour, and vanish on a misty lake. They end up deep in the jungle, in the hands of a tribe awaiting the return of a mythical leader and a book of wisdom that will protect the tribe from the Myanmar military regime. Watching over them all is the disembodied, somewhat snarky spirit of San Francisco art doyenne Bibi Chen, who organized the trip but was murdered before they left.
