Chinese University Press
147 pag. paperback 14 x 21 cm

The five stories collected here provide further evidence of Chen Ruoxi's ability to probe sensitively into the psychology of love and power. The first four stories , set in the Cultural Revolution, are consummate literary studies of human dignity and warmth surviving in a grey wilderness of alienation, skilful portraits of ordinary Chinese people who come to life and take on universal significance in these pages. The fifth and most recent of the stories, "Another Fortress Besieged", represents a new departure

satirizing the antics of an inbred community of Chinese-American

academics and their attempts to ingratiate themselved with a visiting delegation from mainland China.
