The Rape of Nanjing is one of the defining events of modern China. To make it the subject of a novel - poetically called a "requiem" - is to take on the ultimate challenge for a writer whose work melds lyricism to Tolstoyan grand narrative.

He has been compared to Dickens, Balzac, and Isaac Babel. "Like Babel, Ha Jin observes everything. Yet he tells the reader only, and precisely, as much as is needed to make his deceptively simple fiction resonate on many levels" (The New York Times).

Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Ha Jin's "The Bridegroom". Possibly his best collection. At first, the comparison with Isaac Babel, the greatest Russian short-story writer of the 20th century, seemed overblown. But with his third collection, Ha Jin should now put all doubts to rest about his mastery of the form. Indeed, with his ability to evoke mood, convey feeling, and capture the meaning of an ephemeral moment, Ha Jin is probably "wired" more as a short story writer (and poet) than anything else.
