WaitingLarge Print - 2000 1999
A Publishers Weekly Bestseller. "Luminous." - New York Times Book Review. Lin Kong lives in two worlds, struggling with the conflicting claims of two utterly different women as he moves through a society designed to regulate his every move and stifle the promptings of his heart. For more than 17 years, this ambitious doctor has been in love with an educated, modern woman, Manna Wu. But back in his home village lives the wife his family chose for him when he was young - a humble and touchingly loyal woman, whom he visits in order to ask, again and again for a divorce. Ha Jin vividly conjures the texture of daily life in a place where the demands of human longing must contend with the weight of centuries of custom.
