About this product
- DescriptionThis story is about a young girl who traveled from Shanghai to Hong Kong to attend a university, which is transparently Hong Kong University. In the midst of her studies, the Second World War broke out and Hong Kong fell to the Japanese army. The vel ends with the girl returning to Shanghai.
- Author BiographyEileen Chang is now recognized as one of the greatest modern Chinese writers, though she was completely erased from official histories in mainland China at one time. She was the most popular writer in Japanese-occupied Shanghai during World War II, with English and Chinese stories focusing on human frailties rather than nationalist propaganda. For her non-committal politics and idiosyncrasies, she was boycotted by fellow writers after the war and forced to the margins of literary respectability.
