Waiting by Ha Jin *** (of 4)

A love triangle compromised by the Cultural Revolution in China told in exquisite detail. While I was reading I could smell manure in the fields, hear insects pollinating flowers, taste freshly steamed sweet breads, and agonize with a man and two women all of whom deserved better relationships than they were forced to live with.
