My recovery was as swift as it was mysterious, and its only after-effect was a long period of depression following my hospitalisation in Paris. Still this phase was punctuated by various achievements. and broken up by bouts of enthusiasm, but the depression was always latent and reared back up from time to time, as regular as the breathing of the unknown demon. That inhabited me, paralysing me for days on end. I was pinned to my bed, shut away in my glass menagerie, as I called my modest one-bedroom apartment, whose walls I had entirely covered with gilt-framed mirrors.

A young French woman in Peking in the late 1970s interprets between Chinese professors and Bertolucci for his film The Last Emperor.
Once on a Moonless Night book. One on a Moonless Night" is contemporary, but Dai Sijie's imagination is embalmed the period between 1890 and 1920: the period of romantic Sinology, of Fennolosa, Binyon, and even Ezra Pound. The period when an aesthete's most obscure and arcane imaginings conjured a rare perfume, a fragrance so refined, so delicate and faded that it could hardly be perceived.
