    About this book

'The Cursed Piano' is a story of love, music, war, and resistance by Beila, one of China’s most popular new novelists. The book recounts a courageous but little-known chapter in China’s modern history while celebrating a decades-long romance between two improbable characters. Set largely in Shanghai, where European Jews found refuge during World War II, it is a tale of heroism and dedication--to people, to music, and to national pride. Immensely popular in China, Beila's novels are read and appreciated by a broad and diverse audience. 'The Cursed Piano' is her first work to be published in an English edition by acclaimed translators Howard Goldblatt and Sylvia Li-chun Lin, and will soon be developed into a major motion picture. Sweeping and epic in scope, yet profoundly personal and intimate, 'The Cursed Piano' will stand with some of the most critically-acclaimed works of Chinese literature to reach a new audience in the West. Beila is the author of numerous works of popular fiction in China including 'Women on the Far Shore', '911 Wedding of Life and Death', and 'Flowers’ Path'.
