A short collection of short stories about people getting on with their lives, mostly in 1940s Shanghai, while the world changes around them. The title piece, a tale of espionage and seduction, is the most memorable but they are all interesting and well-observed.

I recommend the movie - although I haven't read the original short stories, the film of the same name was very well made, and quite hard to watch in places.

Seconded - one of Ang Lee's best; excellent performances from the leads.

A wonderful writer, Chang Ai-Ling. And multiply adapted for film in Hong Kong, too.
