The Incarnations by Susan Barker Review

The Incarnations is not a story for the faint of heart. With beautiful prose Barker depicts dark themes, but if one is not bothered by heavy and at times taboo plot points, this book is outstanding. Barker frames the lustful and violent stories of the past with Wang’s current life. Using the modern and mostly dull life of Wang Jun as a framing device for the entrancing short stories detailed in the letters provides the readers with a fascinating juxtaposition that keeps them on the edge of their seats, keen on seeing what comes next.
