A memoir


First draft completed and seeking representation.



"The Qi Lin is a rare and precious animal generally depicted with the body of a large stag, the tail of an ox and a single horn in the middle of its forehead. The male is the Qi and the female is the Lin."

—  Zhou Yi

With Grand Master of Beijing Opera Zhou Xinfang as her father, socialite Lillian Qiu as her mother and her siblings scattered across the globe, Zhou Yi tells the tale of a family whose lives are entangled in China's endless and painful struggle from a feudal society to a modern player on the world stage. 


Lucky to have been spared the many disasters leading up to it, not even they could escape the unstoppable force of the Cultural Revolution.
