18th-century murder mystery still delivers

Category : World News

Anthony West has called “Dream of the Red Chamber,” a Chinese novel written in the 18th century, “beyond question one of the great novels of all literature,” and many eminent scholars and critics have agreed with him. That being the case, one feels one really should read it. Many will hesitate, though, before committing themselves to David Hawkes’ five-volume translation — as excellent as that translation is reputed to be. They might turn instead to Chi-Chen Wang’s much shorter abridged version, and, as Arthur Waley has written, “in Wang’s hands [they] will be perfectly safe.” If, however, even a safely abridged version of a novel that is, after all, from a very different time and place seems daunting, there is now another port of entry: Taku Ashibe’s “Murder in the Red Chamber.”
Ashibe, a prize-winning novelist and screen-writer, has given us a book that features the characters, world, and even some of the events of “Dream of the Red Chamber,” but manages to deploy them in the service of what might be called not a locked-room, but a locked-compound mystery, since the murder alluded to in the title—there’s more than one—takes place in the adjoining compounds of two branches of a successful, but declining, aristocratic family. The Qing Dynasty culture in which the book is set will be new to many readers, but they will find their passage into its fascinating foreignness eased by their familiarity with the genre conventions Ashibe employs.
