Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

White Michelia, a collection of five stories by celebrated novelist Pan Xiangli, gives a rich look into the lives of cosmopolitan women living in modern China. Pan's heroines exhibit strength of character, sense of humor and integrity while retaining their grace, beauty and feminine style. These women dare to pursue love on their own terms, all the while maneuvering the changing landscape of work, lifestyle and the city. Writing with a keen eye towards the lifestyle, mindset and cultural values of the modern Chinese woman, Pan Xiangli creates assertive, confident characters willing to face challenges and with the self-assuredness to pursue happiness—all while being stylish and charming.

About the Author

Pan Xiangli's works include the novel Paniculata, the short story collections Walk Without a Dream and Cup For a Decade, a collection of essays called The Age of Innocence, and many more. Her works have been translated into many foreign languages.
