But now I have broken free. Peach as the shadow self Peach is a portrait of the psychological shadow self. My Mulberry and Peach book tips hurt suddenly I realise that the cigarette I'm holding is burning my fingers my shoes are splattered with mud on the table beside Mulberry and Peach book bed there's a half-drunk Bloody Mary. This is an essay about immigration, trauma, and its resulting somatic pathology in the female protagonist of Nieh's Mulberry and Peach, the character Mulberry representing the Chinese protagonist and the character Peach a second personality appearing in her stateside episodes. This journey is set against the background of social unrest in the United States and incessant wars in Asia, including demonstrations against the Vietnam War, rising anti-Communist and xenophobic sentiments in the United States, China's battle against Japan during World War II, and the Chinese civil war followed by the divide between "two Chinas":1 the People's Republic of China PRC on the mainland established by the Communist regime and the Republic of China ROC in Taiwan under the rule of the Nationalist government. Rather, Mulberry and Peach is an allegory of how schizophrenic geopolitical divisions and internal, national conflicts often become embodied by immigrants, the psychosomatic consequences of national border crossing.
