Cancel List of Bookmarks For many years I maintained far too many magazine subscriptions, more periodicals than I could possibly read or even skim, so most weeks they went straight into storage, with scarcely more than a glance at the cover. But every now and then, I might casually browse one of them, curious about what I had usually been missing. Thus, in the summer ofI happened to leaf through an issue of Chronicles, the small-circulation flagship organ of the marginalized paleoconservative movement, and soon began reading a blandly-titled book review.
It took me three days to read it and that was not because it was a long book… it was reluctance to continue reading it. But the tensions between the four sisters are still unresolved, her father is as domineering as ever, and her mother is wholly compliant, just as before.
To say that she keeps putting her foot in it, is putting it mildly. But intelligent as she is, Natasha does not seek help with a counsellor but struggles on alone within this noisy demanding family. Australian author Alice Pung in Growing up Asian in Australia and her memoir Unpolished Gem has written frankly about the intergenerational conflict that can arise when families migrate from countries with different attitudes towards the older generation.
In The Healing Party Lee shows the reader ways in which members of the family adapt in different ways but still defer to the older generation. In some ways they are not a stereotypical wealthy Chinese-Australian family of high achievers.
However, apart from Natasha, the women have what is in Australia an old-fashioned attitude towards the inevitability of marriage and the sisters who have successful relationships pity the one who does not. None of them stand up to this bully: It is quite harrowing to read about her treatment in hospital being accompanied by ecstatic prayer and song.
I have lived this experience with a dying friend of mine who was a born-again Christian, and the hospital intervened for her sake and the sake of the other patients. And this I think is the unresolved nub of the novel: My generation knows how the Vietnam War divided families for decades, and the conscription issue divided families in the early 20th century.This is a list of novelists living in Australia or publishing significantly while living there.
