This is a truly spellbinding and lyrical novel, with two perspectives: one from the main character, a gifted-Go playing young lady in Manchuria [living in the small city called Thousand Winds], and a Japanese soldier/officer, a member of the invading and occupying Japanese military.
In short vignette-like chapters, covers the history of the period as the novel's backdrop quite nicely.
[The author's name is a pseudonym; she is a well-known painter/writer in France, originally from China. I believe her name is Yan Ni.]
