Summary
Enamored by Hollywood in prerevolutionary China, Wang Qiyao serendipitously poses for a photograph that is chosen for the cover of Shanghai Life magazine. Dubbed A Proper Young Lady of Shanghai, she wins second runner-up in a 1946 beauty pageant and is soon mistress to a wealthy benefactor. After his death, marriage in her fallen state is out of the question, and Wang Qiyao embarks on a lonely, decades-long journey through Shanghai's myriad longtang, or vast neighborhoods inside enclosed alleys
Summary
Becoming a minor celebrity when her photograph appears on the cover of Shanghai Life magazine and winning second-runner up in a beauty pageant, Wang Qiyao becomes a mistress to a wealthy benefactor, but after his death, she begins a lonely fall into anonymity
