Japanese-occupied Manchuria in the late 1930s. In the Square of a Thousand Winds, snow falls as a 16 year old Chinese girl beats all-comers at the game of go. One of her opponents is, unknown to her, a young Japanese officer of the occupying power, rigidly militaristic, imbued with the imperial ethic, but far from home and intrigued by this young opponent who plays like a man. Their encounters are like the game itself, restrained, subtle, surprisingly fierce. But as their two stories unfold, and some Chinese try to ignore their oppressors, while others are caught up in dangerous resistance, the Japanese army moves inexorably through their huge land, in the vanguard of a greater war, leaving blood and destruction in its wake. This 2003 Chatto & Windus Paperback is in good condition.
