Samuel Shem

At the Heart of the Universe

€ 28.95


`The story of two mothers and a father in love with the same daughter, Samuel Shem`s At the Heart of the Universe is an epic novel set deep in rural China against the backdrop of an ancient mountain monastery during the time of the one-child-per-family policy. Inspired by the author`s experiences as parent of an adopted child, it describes the drama of adoption and the journey of loss and rebirth that can happen when a daughter brings together her adopted mother and father with her birth mother high on amountaintop. Set in 1991 in Changsha, capital of Hunan province, as a Chinese woman abandons her one-month-old daughter in a pile of celery in a busy market, and then shifting to Changsha ten years later as the daughter returns with her adopted Americanparents, the story moves across southern China until, high atop Emei San, one of China`s `sacred mountains` with a Buddhist temple, the four are brought together in the wilderness--a perilous and explosive time that unleashes their heartbreak and suffering and, remarkably, transcends it to shared compassion, and new beginnings`-
