Synopses & Reviews
Beginning in the mid-1980s, almost every important contemporary Western work began to be translated into Chinese, including radical avant-garde fiction. Postmodernist Chinese authors began to present their readers with wildly experimental stories that challenged the conventions of culture and ideology. This volume gathers some of the most exciting and innovative of these writers, many of whom are appearing in English for the first time. Authors include Can Xue, Ge Fei, Hong Ying, Lin Bai, Ma Jian, Ma Yuan, Su Tong, Wang Anyi, Yu Hua, and Yan Li.
