Description: Set in the northern provincial commune town of Dismount Fort, "In The Pond" tells the story of Shao Bin, a downtrodden worker at the Harvest Fertilizer plant by day and an ambitious amateur artist by night. Passed over on the list to receive a larger apartment, while those in favor with the party are selected ahead of him, Shao Bin chafes at his powerlessness until he hits upon a solution: placing a satirical cartoon in the provincial newspaper. "In The Pond" is a close, unsentimental depiction of life in a small factory town; the maneuvering, posturing, petty jealousies and injustices of an ordinary man who tangles with the party bosses. Ha Jin is a writer of stark power, simple beauty, and poignant irony, and in this first novel, he creates a darkly funny, moving fable about ordinary human lives caught up in overwhelming social forces, and about the power of art to dispel the darkness.
