Lately we ve been consumed with how our own government is spying on us but of course there are foreign agents peering at us too My friends in the game say corporate espionage stealing manufacturing and software secrets is where the action is now which is enough to make an old spook pine for the Cold War Those were the days when monomaniacal leaders banged on about their superior ideologies and

Tunnel and dispatching enemies with toxic lip balm you need to calm down right now A Map of Betrayal is the perfect thriller for the reader with a heart condition Gary is a torpid man who works as a translator for the CIA in the Washington area He s neither shaken nor stirredThis tale of betrayals and disappointments is a natural one for Ha Jin to publish As a teenager he served in the People s Liberation Army and survived the Cultural Revolution But he watched the Tiananmen Suare massacre from Brandeis University where he was finishing a dissertation on American literature Disillusioned by his country he never returned To preserve the integrity of my work he said several years ago I had no choice but to write in English That has proved a spectacularly successful choice He s since won a

an extra element of intrigue The story comes to us along two time frames In the present day a middle aged American woman named Lilian describes her efforts to piece together the duplicitous life of her late father the convicted spy Gary Shang loosely based on the true story of Larry Wu Tai Chin Her sudden interest is inspired by receiving six volumes of his secret diary in which he recorded his life from 1949 to 1980 when he was finally caught by the FBI There was no denying that my father had been a top spy Lilian says but the I worked on his materials the I was convinced that money hadn t been the primary motivation in his espionage for China I came to believe that he d been not only a betrayer but also someone who d been betrayed While Lilian is describing her search for her father s abandoned family in China alternating chapters present Gary s life through the decades of political and military turmoil A historian by profession Lilian says I wanted to tell it in my own fashion while remaining as objective as possible Usually that sort of claim to objectivity is an irony marker as subtle as the Washington Monument but in this case that s exactly what she provides an efficiently detailed story of a modest man pulled away from his family and into spycraft by twisted strands of patriotism egotism and naiveteStarting in the years after the war when the tension between Taiwan and China seems always ready to explode A Map of Betrayal sweeps by like a time lapse photo of geopolitical conflict Embracing his protracted mission Gary does whatever he can to relay information about the American s uneasiness with Taiwan s Chiang Kai shek their efforts to deal with Nikita Khrushchev and the Soviets ever expanding nuclear arsenal Despite the distance of an ocean and a continent he could feel China s pulse Ha Jin writes which beat irregularly racing feverishly as though he could at last grasp intimately his vast homeland in its entirety At the same time in his faux job at the CIA he makes an effort to shade his translations in hopes of prodding the United States to be cautious In other words he imagines himself from his tiny office steering the superpowers toward peace and their mutual interestsHewing to the historical facts Ha Jin makes little effort to dramatize the methods of espionage with nail biting drop offs arcane codes or false mustaches Year after year Gary carries out his simple casual fashion of conducting espionage He takes documents home photographs or summarizes them passes the information on to Beijing Money appears in his bank account and life in Alexandria rolls along He s marooned a nameless hero on the invisible front The psychological damage wears on him like the effects of a bad diet and that s the real subject of this novel Gary is a man trapped in a peculiar conspiracy of circumstance and character His heart was always elsewhere Jin writes Wherever he went he d feel out of place like a stranded traveler Cut off for security reasons from his wife and children in China he s encouraged to start a family in America but that entanglement of affection and deception brings him no joy In his lifelong pursuit of secret knowledge he never managed to accept the obvious fact that he was being irreparably used by the motherland Years later Gary s old handler tells Lilian A nail must remain in its position and rot with the wood it s stuck in so a spy of the nail type is or less a goner One of the great collateral benefits of Lilian s investigation of her father is her always astute comments about contemporary China a land racing toward capitalism while still haunted by the horrors of starvation and massive social disruption And as she uncovers the details of Gary s espionage she discovers troubling truths about others capacity for deception including herself But her placid voice never betrays any emotion beyond earnest curiosity Her regard for her father the man who raised her in what she now realizes was a web of lies betrays almost no psychological entanglement There s a special poignancy in the closing pages but the novel s restrained tone makes the whole enterprise feel too severely pruned for

A Map of Betrayal Read Æ 102 Ican mother never suspected As Lilian begins to fathom her father's dilemma torn between loyalty to his motherland and the love he came to feel for his adopted country she sees how his sense of duty distorted his life But as she starts to understand that Gary too had been betrayed she finds that it is up to her to prevent his tragedy from damaging yet another generation of her family. This is a novel that doesn t uite work for me as either a compelling spy story or as a fictional doorway into history although that is the main reason to read it It provides the author with a platform to reflect on US China interactions during the second half of the 20th century and to present aspects of the Chinese American experience It s an okay read but not a book I would recommend to friends Themes of interest to me were spies who may grow to want to serve two countries patriotism and nationalism the role of nationalism in our world today the complexity of opinions surrounding the Chinese and Chinese Americans about their country how family bonds trump nationalismIt was about halfway through the book that I became uber critical of the author s tendency to always provide physical descriptions of individuals that were pretty irrelevant and at times judgmental especially with a sort of name calling I also felt that he was unable to authentically provide a steady real and feminine voice for Lillian his protagonist There is rampant use of collouial phrases in dialogue perhaps in an attempt to make dialogue sound down to earth Also I found it highly unlikely that Gary Sheng would have kept a diary detailing his spy work and his feelings about his home country and the US To do so simply would have been too riskySample sources of irritation she was slightly thick boned but looked smart and energetic Who is he to play the judge here on appearance Would Lillian really have summarily criticized the appearance of her nephew s girlfriend in that way Sounds falsewhat a flameoutLillian I had to manage his paltry retirement plan for him would this university professor have put it in such a petulant waythe flat chested cross examinerthe pot bellied
