About this item

Sent to live in England after the disappearance of his parents, Christopher Banks returns to Shanghai, the city of his birth, more than twenty years later to uncover the truth about the tragedy that transformed his childhood.

From the Booker Prize-winning, bestselling author of Remains of the Day""comes this stunning work of soaring imagination.
Born in early-twentieth-century Shanghai, Banks was orphaned at the age of nine after the separate disappearances of his parents. Now, more than twenty years later, he is a celebrated figure in London society; yet the investigative expertise that has garnered him fame has done little to illuminate the circumstances of his parents' alleged kidnappings. Banks travels to the seething, labyrinthine city of his memory in hopes of solving the mystery of his own, painful past, only to find that war is ravaging Shanghai beyond recognition-and that his own recollections are proving as difficult to trust as the people around him.
Masterful, suspenseful and psychologically acute, When We Were Orphans""offers a profound meditation on the shifting quality of memory, and the possibility of avenging one's past.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this book, but it turned out to be very engaging--the story of a man trying to unravel his personal history against the backdrop of historical events. I took it on vacation and finished it in a week. A great read!
