About this product
- DescriptionThe 14 short stories collected here, all inspired by real-life events, are about people caught in the unsettling drama of a fast-changing China, about the average person who thrusts forward in life, stubbornly, despite the bewilderment, the setbacks, and sometimes, the stunning blows. Witty, poignant, absurd, and shocking, the stories were originally written in English and have already been published in the United States in a collection titled Red Guard Fantasies and Other Stories. This newly prepared English Chinese bilingual edition is for those brave souls who feel compelled to partake a new venture into a myriad world of jaded entrepreneurs, overzealous cops, karaoke fanatics, dog lovers (and haters), liberated coeds, and frustrated urbanites who move in and out of China's colorful neon-lit cities and dusty rural villages, transitioning from one world to the other. The reward for this venture should be richer than deepened understanding of China and its people.
