it was amazing
bookshelves: china, the-new-modernity
Read in August, 2012

Since I am now living in China, this book obviously speaks to me at a high level. But that doesn't change how incredible it is, and how insightfully it examines the culture here. I didn't love Yiyun Li's The Vagrants, but this collection takes things to the perfect level of brevity and emotional depth. Please read this if you like short stories, other cultures, and gaining a better understanding of the world we live in both present and past.

But again, I'm biased.
