BLURB

Lin Hong is sitting in her young lady’s bedchamber, in a Shanghai longtang 弄堂, where it is said that anything can happen, where even melancholy is noisy and glamorous. It is in the midst of these humble alleyways that Lin Hong has spent her most precious years as a girl, and then again her years as a woman with a certain past. Having passed the naiveté of a young girl, she now finds herself alone in this misty ambience, opening the letter that she was waiting for impatiently. Every morning she strolled down the alley to look after the mail, but nothing. No sign from her loved one, to this day. The day when the raging civil war has finally come to an end was the day when the message arrived. Lin Hongs shaking hands are holding the inked paper. Her tears flood over the accurate characters whilst they are vanishing into meaningless words. It is said that when it drizzles, raindrops write the word melancholy on the windows of the longtang. When the clouds open to reveal the rising sun, this place turns to smoke and mist, into eternity. [Melani Murkovic]
