by Yan Geling & Lawrence Walker
This collection of five stories and a novella describes life in China during the Cultural Revolution. Focusing on personal relationships and showing how they were affected by the political upheavals and social pressures of the time, Geling Yan presents a series of often tragic tales, beautifully balancing irony and intense emotion. The collection includes "Celestial Bath," the basis for Joan Chen's award-winning film "Xiu Xiu: The Sent Down Girl."
By Ha Jin
Like a Russian classic! Ha Jin has won many literary awards by writing stories of China.
Becoming Madam Mao
By Anchee Min
It is a historical novel, dreamlike. Madam Mao, the white boned devil, has never been written like this.
