Description: In this illuminating anthology, David Su Li-Qun and Carolyn Choa introduce American readers to China's most enthralling writers at work today. From Shanghai to Beijing, and all of the regions in between, we meet people whose lives have been transformed by their country's recent history, like the married dancer in "Life in a Small Courtyard, " who discovers the value of love when she consoles a friend alienated by her wealthy husband. "Between Life and Death" introduces an obstetrician who rises above societal convention by sharing her life with a proud mortician. And in "Fate, " a writer ruminates over the split-second that has prevented him from ever going to the West. Alternately whimsical and profound, surreal and gritty, each of the twenty-one exceptional stories in The Vintage Book of Chinese Fiction is a literary testament to a post-revolutionary nation in transition.
