Description:
The Book of Change was written in English, like its prequel, The Fall of the Pagoda, depicting Chang's childhood in Tianjin and Shanghai. It provides a first-hand account of life in wartime Hong Kong following the Japanese invasion, with scathing details of widespread cowardice, as well as inspiring examples of human resilience.

"Chang is quick to tell us she is one of those people she sets out to satirize: first shocked by the disorder of war, yet becoming accustomed to the new order of life in a short time… what concerns her most is food. She calls attention to people's grotesque behavior and 'bizarre wisdom' inspired by the instinct to survive. Physical intimacy, like food, becomes a poignant index to convey the primordial needs of humanity." – From the Introduction by David Der-wei Wang, Harvard University
