A small blue bowl turns into an emblem of vanishing formative years; a painter in a race opposed to fading reminiscence scribbles notes in an underground legal throughout the Cultural Revolution; an deserted temple room holds a depressing secret. An Empty Room is a soul-stirring web page turner, a Sebaldian reverie of passing time, loss, and humanity regained.
