The House of Cards

Mee, Charles L.

A man builds a house of cards, while memories of beauty and horror cascade through his skull: exquisite things and memories of war, the beauties of the passing seasons and the recollections of techniques of torture, love songs and bits of opera, and the effort to wrest from it all some consoling philosophy of life.

Originally produced under the title "Chiang Kai Chek."
