Abstract:

"[A] tale of a man's journey from impoverished rural boy to corporate tycoon, [stealing] its shape from the business self-help books devoured by ambitious youths all over 'rising Asia'"--Dust jacket flap.

From impoverished rural boy to corporate tycoon, our nameless hero amasses an empire built on that most fluid, and increasingly scarce, of goods: water. Yet his heart remains set on something else: the pretty girl whose star rises along with his, their paths crossing and recrossing, a lifelong affair sparked and snuffed and sparked again by the forces that careen their fates along.
