Under the Hawthorn Tree

Author(s): Ai Mi


In the late seventies, after the Cultural Revolution, a young girl, Jingqiu, falls passionately in love with a boy nicknamed 'Old Three'. Jingqiu is from a politically suppressed family, while Three is the son of a mighty army general. Their budding romance is cut short by fate; Three dies before there is an ending for them, happy or otherwise. Jingqiu eventually leaves China but she never forgets Three, the man who loved her with a passion so pure that she believed it could last forever. Transcending the boundaries between fact and fiction, Ai Mi has brought together for the first time Jingqiu's tragic story - these are her diaries and notebooks.
