A beautiful and haunting novel; longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2012. Malaya, 1949. After a career spent helping to prosecute Japanese war criminals, Yun Ling Teoh, herself the scarred lone survivor of a brutal Japanese wartime camp, seeks solace among the jungle fringed plantations of Northern Malaya. There she meets the enigmatic Aritomo, exiled former gardener of the Emperor of Japan. Yun Ling asks Aritomo to create a garden in memory of her sister. But the Garden of Evening Mists is also a place of mystery, and the jungle holds secrets of its own - The Garden of Evening Mists deals with Malaysia's turbulent road to independence, a time of insurrection, uncertainty and terror.
