The Elephant

Stories By Contemporary Writers from Shanghai

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Tormented by memories of his former lover and the sudden appearance of the beautiful and enigmatic Lin Yi, the author embarks on a stunning narrative journey: a voyeuristic quest across the African wilderness through the eyes of an elephant. Tracking his character’s development from birth to adulthood against his own emotional maturation, the writer becomes a victim to his own imagination as he struggles to deal with the intellectual and physical challenges of growing old.

The Elephant is an intimate exploration of genre and narrative technique through one writer’s destructive obsession with his fictional world. Set simultaneously in Shanghai and Africa, the writer’s relationship with his literary creations challenges our conventional understanding of composition, truth and characterization while exposing the psychosomatic consequences of unobstructed imagination.
