Baba: A Return to China Upon My Father’s Shoulders
Belle Yang (au); Amy Tan (pf). Baba is “Papa” in Chinese, & this particular Baba is Joseph Yang, born in Manchuria in 1928. His daughter, Belle, a writer & visual artist who was born in Taiwan, set out to paint & to write Baba’s memories of his coming-of-age in northern China in the 1930s & 1940s. The result is the illustrated odyssey of the fourth of seven children in the House of Yang, a prominent Manchurian family, whose experience of the Japanese occupation, the Russian onslaught upon northeastern China, & the ensuing Chinese civil war makes for a spellbinding tale. Belle Yang brings us old China & new China, in art & vibrant prose. She senses the lost world of her father in Chinese, yet conveys all this with English, with poetry, with the universal power of language. Illustrations.
