“A fascinating novel, similar to Arthur Golden’s Memoirs of a Geisha … A revisionist portrait of a beautiful and strong-willed woman” (Houston Chronicle).

A San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of the Year

From Anchee Min, a master of the historical novel, Empress Orchid sweeps readers into the heart of the Forbidden City to tell the fascinating story of a young concubine who becomes China’s last empress. Min introduces the beautiful Tzu Hsi, known as Orchid, and weaves an epic of the country girl who seized power through seduction, murder, and endless intrigue. When China is threatened by enemies, she alone seems capable of holding the country together.

In this “absorbing companion piece to her novel Becoming Madame Mao, ” readers and reading groups will once again be transported by Min’s lavish evocation of the Forbidden City in its last days of imperial glory and by her brilliant portrait of a flawed yet utterly compelling woman who survived, and ultimately dominated, a male world (The New York Times).

“Superb … [An] unforgettable heroine. ” —People

“A sexually charged, eye-opening portrayal of the Chinese empire … with heart-wrenching scenes of desperate failure and a sensuality that rises off its heated pages. ” —Elle
