Soul Mountain - Gao Xingjian No longer determined to finish it. The abuse is too distressing. Not even Gao's fairly gorgeous prose can make up for my distress. ++++++One quarter of the way in Gao Xingjian continues to be a remarkable writer but I'm over the raping and suicide of women theme in the storytelling. He is telling these stories to a suicidally depressed woman he picked up in a village. A woman he is sexually attracted to. Or perhaps I will be surprised and discover she is telling these stories to herself, a symptom of her fear and flight?Still, determined to finish it this time.
