Product description

Product Description

The House of Ninety-nine Closed Doors is a riveting and exciting saga of a very traditional Chinese family. The Oh family is uprooted from Shantou to Singapore before the Second World War and maintains its repressive structures right through to the 1960s and beyond.

It is by turns absorbing, sad and funny, with all the elements of good narrative and a vast tapestry of characters in a large family.

Cher Chidzey gives unique insight into a world which has gone for good, and a cultural view of the kind of obstacles and background to present-day Chinese society. The various trajectories of the family members reflect the strands of social change and mobility faced by much of the world today. These range from family dynamics to living through vast political upheavals, such as wars, economic changes and globalisation.

But above all, it is a human story, full of foibles, jealousies and affection as the Little Warlord struggles to find her place in the world.
