Traditional Chinese culture rests upon the shoulders of three great sages, Confucius, the Buddha, and Lao Tzu. YIN is the story of the latter, the most mysterious and least known of the heavenly trio, and his quest for a soul mate, a quest answered by a tortoise, a Galápagos giant to be precise, brought to him, as a tiny baby, from across the great Pacific. A work of magical realism in the vein of Gabriel Garcia Márquez and David Mitchell, YIN chronicles the efforts of the great sage to create the woman of his dreams. It is a novel of idealism, frustration, persistence, unimaginable endurance, failure, tragedy, and triumph. Set alternately in current China’s era of economic marvels and social change, and in the formative, ancient dynasty during which the seeds of today’s great nation were sown, YIN entrances and enchants as a love story for the ages, yet also mines an ancient philosophy to offer readers both a different way of thinking and of looking at the world, and a recipe for social and environmental change.
