This extraordinary novel recounts the dual lives and split personalities of one young woman. Mulberry has fled the turmoil of postwar China to settle in the United States, though she continues to relive the trials she endured in China and is fearful to leave the small space that shelters her. Unable to resolve the conflicts between her new life and her old, she develops a second personality: fearless, tough-talking, sexually uninhibited Peach. Stylistically innovative, "Mulberry and Peach" offers a compelling portrait of the psychological and cultural dislocations of an immigrant's life.
