Description

Named one of the Top Ten Novels of the Year in China, this award-winning novel is about three tourists who fall into a strange entanglement of love. Set against the magical backdrop of Dunhuang, China, home to thousands of painted cave murals, Dunhuang Dreams magically blends the stories of three protagonists: Xiao Xingxing, a talented young female artist, Zhang Shu, a laboratory technician from a Beijing research institute who recently quit his job, and Xiang Wuye, a medical student. These three individuals seek refuge in Dunhuang from their troubled lives, but soon find themselves in a love triangle and involved in a scandalous theft. Original and dynamic, Dunhuang Dreams harmoniously combines a contemporary story with ancient and modern Buddhist themes. It is a tale of searching, escaping from the past, and longing for true love.
