Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the print version of Volume Two of Chinese Literature and Culture, a journal published three times a year. This volume features: Six stories: "An Empty Home" by Xiu Bai, "Hunting Season" by Ying Chuan, "Journey of Conscience" by Yao Emei, "The Story of Hu Wenqing" by Wei Wei, "Defending the Teacher" by Xiao Su, and "Knowing Nobody, a Housemaid in Beijing" by Liu Qingbang, and Mu Tao's Lu Xun Prize winning essay: "Culture Has Blood and Flesh." From the runaway bride Peach in "An Empty Home" to the mute housemaid Jiahui in "Journey of Conscience" to the successful but disillusioned businessman Hu Wenqing, this volume reflects the diverse problems of contemporary Chinese work-a-day life and a search for meaning in a changing world. From most of these stories you hear the critical voice of today's Chinese writers and a call to the reader, beyond cultural borders, to a critical engagement with life's final questions.
