A work of fiction inspired by the author’s early life in Japanese-occupied China. Both the time period and the subject are of interest to me, as is the author’s writing style and semi-autobiographical story. Growing up, one of my family’s favorite books was Fritz Muhlenweg’s Big Tiger and Christian and the adventures of two boys, one Chinese and one German in 1922 Mongolia is very reminiscent of the protagonist and her half-Chinese friends.
