Interesting stories, and definitely an author to watch.

These stories are small vignettes out of someone's day/life. But because it is a just a tidbit, the story is unresolved. Stories like this always drive me crazy, because I want to know what happened in the end. But, that feeling was more true here, because the stories take place in China, and I feel unable to fill in the blanks myself, not knowing the cultural and generational norms.
