The Garden of Evening Mists

Tan Twan Eng
Description

Teoh Yun Ling was seventeen years old when she first heard about Aritomo and the garden. But a war would come to Malaya, and a decade pass, before she would travel to see him. A man of extraordinary skill and reputation, Aritomo was once the gardener to the Emperor of Japan, and now Yun Ling needs him. She needs him to help her build a memorial to her beloved sister, killed at the hands of the Japanese. She wants to learn everything Aritomo can teach her, and do her sister proud, but to do so she must also begin a journey into her own past, a past inextricably linked with the secrets of her troubled country.

'Complex and powerful...A sophisticated and satisfying novel that explores the ways time reconfigures memory' - Sunday Times

'Impossible to resist' - Guardian

'A beautiful, dark and wistful exploration of loss and remembrance that will stay with you long after reading' - Daily Telegraph
