Cocoon

⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4 out of 5 stars

Title:               Cocoon

Author:           Zhang Yueran

Publisher:        World Editions

Format:           ARC, ebook

Publication:     4th of October 2022

Cheng Gong and Li Jiaqi have known each other since childhood in the 1980s. Now, they reunite to reminisce about the past…

Cocoon is an original position. Written in beautiful, lyrical prose, the novel explores love, family and friendship. The narrative blends the present and past as the author weaves her tale that touches on complex topics in recent Chinese history, like Cultural Revolution and Korean War. This book is full of stories the main characters tell about their ancestors, parents and grandparents. It is a fascinating but slightly overwhelming read.
