Raise the Red Lantern: Three Novellas by Su Tong

The brutal realities of the dark places Su Tong depicts in this collection of novellas set in 1930s provincial China -- worlds of prostitution, poverty, and drug addiction -- belie his prose of stunning and simplebeauty. The title novella, Raise the Red Lantern, which became a critically acclaimed film, tells the story of Lotus, a young woman whose fathers suicide forces her to become the concubine of a wealthy merchant. Crushed by loneliness, despair, and cruel treatment, Lotus finds her descent into insanity both a weapon and a refuge.

Nineteen Thirty-Four Escapes is an account of a familys struggles during one momentous year; plagued by disease, death, and the shady promise of life in a larger town, the family slowly disintegrates.

Finally, Opium Family details the last years of a landowning clan whose demise is brought about by corruption, lust, and treachery -- fruits of the insidious crop they harvest.

Textbook of Biochemistry with Clinical Correlations

This is the sixth and substantially revised edition of a textbook that has already earned an important role as a teaching guide in biochemistry. The book focuses very specifically on eukaryotic biochemistry, with emphasis on mammalian systems, because of the importance of understanding biochemistry as it pertains to human disease. This textbook is designed to fulfill the requirements of most upper level undergraduate and graduate level courses in biochemistry and physiological chemistry. The text is broken down into 5 main sections that cover the areas of macromolecular structure, transmission of information including translational and transcriptional events, protein function, metabolic pathways and their control, and physiological processes. These 5 sections are broken down further to generate a total of 28 chapters, each of which is written by an expert in that particular field; taken together, the chapters cover the entire area of eukaryote biochemistry. New sections have been introduced that cover the recently expanded areas of signal transduction, the cell cycle, apoptosis, and cancer.

The University of Chicago Ill. As I noted 10 years ago in my review of the first edition of Textbook of Biochemistry, With Clinical Correlations , this is a big book. Balance is difficult to achieve in a work this large, especially in a text that does not seem to express a particular focus or approach. The exposition is as even as one could expect from a well-edited multiauthor volume, and most worthy subjects receive significant attention, if not at least passing mention. Textbook of Biochemistry tries to do a lot but, in the end, perhaps tries to do a little too much. Tager HS. Textbook of Biochemistry, With Clinical Correlations.
