Rosalie Matilda Kuanghu Chou (Chinese: 周光瑚; pinyin: Zhōu Guānghú) (12 September 1917 (or 1916) – 2 November 2012) was a Chinese-born Eurasian physician and author better known by her pen name Han Suyin (simplified Chinese: 韩素音; traditional Chinese: 韓素音; pinyin: Hán Sùyīn).

Han Suyin remained in London to take her finals and then moved to Hong Kong. It was there that she met and had a passionate affair with the Times correspondent Ian Morrison. Their relationship was the basis of A Many-Splendoured Thing, which became a bestseller. It is an unashamed love story: the idyllic scenes on the hillside overlooking the harbour are in the book as much as the film, Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing (1955). A sharp piece of social satire, the book pulls apart the preposterous world of expatriate Hong Kong. In a slim volume of autobiography, Wind in my Sleeve (1992), she wrote of her "grief, anger, desolation" at the Beijing massacre but the book attracted little attention. She decided that "the world was in such an intellectual mess that I would write detective stories" but she continued to visit China regularly.

Et la pluie pour ma soif.

Growing up as a mixed-race child, Dr. Han later said, she felt she had a foot in each of two words but a secure footing in neither. She was widely criticized, for instance, for having called the Cultural Revolution - the Maoist social program of the 1960s and ’70s in which hundreds of thousands of people, if not more, were killed - a creative historical undertaking, as she described it in Wind in the Tower. Though Dr. Han revised her position on Chinese Communism somewhat in the wake of the Tiananmen Square massacre of 1989, she remained, at bottom, an unapologetic patriot

Phoenix Harvest (MY HOUSE HAS TWO DOORS, VOL 2) (v. 2). Han Suyin. The book is in a great condition, well-written and many pages to read, totally worth the price. Overall it's very nice. Good for a personal or family collection.
