BUYING A FISHING ROD FOR MY GRANDFATHER
by Gao Xingjian
published by Harper Collins

*

A young couple on honeymoon visit a beautiful temple up in the mountains, and spend the day intoxicated by the tranquillity of the setting; a swimmer is paralysed by a sudden cramp and finds himself stranded far out to sea on a cold autumn day; a man reminisces about his beloved grandfather, who used to make his own fishing rods from lengths of crooked bamboo straightened over a fire...

Blending the crisp immediacy of the present moment with the soft afterglow of memory and nostalgia, these stories hum with simplicity and wisdom - and will delight anyone who loved Gao's bestselling novels, Soul Mountain and One Man's Bible.
