Description

About the Book: The Porcelain Thief

The Porcelain Thief will combine Hsus fascinating record of his family history with accounts of great political and cultural changes, and perhaps reveal, at last, the secret hiding place of his grandfathers porcelain..

In 1938, with the Japanese army approaching from Nanking, Huan Hsus great-great grandfather, Liu, and his five granddaughters, were forced to flee their hometown on the banks of the Yangtze River. But before they left a hole was dug as deep as a man, and as wide as a bedroom, in which was stowed the family heirlooms. Among their antique furniture, jade and scrolls, was Lius prized porcelain collection, one he had amassed over many years and which contained priceless imperial items. The vault was fill to its brim before being covered with a false floor and replanted with vegetation. The familys flight across wartorn China, and the arrival of the Communists, would scatter them across the globe. Grandfather Lius treasure became family myth, from a time that no one wished to speak of - no one ever returned to find it.

Three years ago, Huan Hsu moved back to China from the US. Armed with only the slightest threads of family memory, he set out to discover the truth. His investigations will take him through Chinas cultural past and present, of which porcelain is a unique linking thread. He will gather memories of the China of another age from elderly relatives, uncover the story of his familys flight from the Japanese, and confront the contradictions of contemporary China.
