"From the author of the bestselling The Good Women of China comes the uplifting story of three sisters who, like so many migrant workers in today's China, leave their peasant community to seek their fortune in the big city. The Li sisters don't have much education, but one thing has been drummed into them: their mother is a failure because she hasn't managed to produce a son, and they themselves only merit a number as a name. Women, their father tells them, are like chopsticks: utilitarian and easily broken. Men, on the other hand, are the strong rafters that hold up the roof of a house. Yet when circumstances lead the sisters to seek work in distant Nanjing, the shocking new urban environment opens their eyes. While Three contributes to the success of a small fast-food restaurant, Five and Six learn new talents at a health spa and a bookshop/tearoom. And when the money they earn starts arriving back at the village, their father is forced to recognise that daughters are not so dispensable after all. Xinran has become known for her wonderful ability to take readers to the heart of Chinese society. In this new book she tells not only a human story, but the story of a city. As the Li sisters discover Nanjing, so do we: its past, its customs and culture, and its future as a place where people can change their lives"--Publisher's website

Extrait de la couverture : "Un dicton chinois que 'dans chaque famille il y a un llivre qu'il vaut mieux ne pas lire à haute voix'. Une femme a rompu le silence. Durant huit années, de 1989 à 1997, Xinran a présenté chaque nuit à la radio chinoise une émission au cours de laquelle elle invitait les femmes à parler d'elles-mêmes, sans tabou. Elle a rencontré des centaines d'entre elles. Avec compassion elle les a écoutées se raconter et lui confier leurs secrets enfouis au plus profond d'elles-mêmes. Epouses de hauts dirigeants du Parti ou paysannes du fin fond de la Chine, elles disent leurs souffrances incroyabkes : mariages forcés, violes, familles décimées, pauvreté ou folie... Mais elles parlent aussi d'amour. Elles disent aussi comment, en dépit des épreuves, en dépit du chaos politique, elles chérissent et nourrissent ce qui leur reste."
