Award -winning Chinese writer, Tie Ning, shares a stunningly original novel that captures the Spirit of a new generation of young professionals in contemporary China. The Bathing Women follows the lives of four women: Tiao, a children’s book editor; Fan, her sister who believes escaping to America may solve her problems; Fei, a self-destructive young woman; and Youyou, a chef who spent childhood during the Cultural Revolution and progressed to adulthood in the new market economy. Live with these women as they grapple with love, sibling rivalry, redemption and much more.

Note: You are strongly encouraged to read the book in advance in order to actively participate in discussion.
