Overview

A finales del siglo XIX la dinastía Qing está viviendo sus últimos días. La habilidad política de los antiguos emperadores se ha diluido en el arcaísmo de las estructuras de gobierno y las ambiciones colonialistas europeas. Solo el esplendor de la corte de Pekín conserva el atractivo de la antigua China imperial. Este es el paisaje que sirve de telón de fondo a la historia de Orquídea, una joven de diecisiete años perteneciente a una familia aristocrática venida a menos que, gracias a su belleza y talento innatos, y a un gran poder de seducción, se convertirá, de simple concubina, en la última emperatriz de China. Apoyada en una recreación meticulosa y fiel de la China imperial, La Ciudad Prohibida es el relato de una ambición condenada por la historia y el cautivador fresco de un mundo desaparecido. "Min, superviviente de la Revolución Cultural china, ha realizado una prodigiosa búsqueda de documentación para capturar los gloriosos y desesperanzados últimos días de la dinastía Qing".
