Old Land, New Tales : 20 Short Stories by Writers of the Shaanxi Region in China Paperback / softback
In this captivating collection from the Shaanxi region, considered the cradle of Chinese civilization, twenty disparate and unique voices come together to show a China caught between new-world advancements and old-world traditions. From the homeland of China's first dynasty and the world-famous terra-cotta warriors, these tales show rugged rural life colliding with fast-paced city life; hollow arranged marriages juxtaposed with torrid forbidden love affairs; and the vanity of newly minted millionaires clashing with the desperation of the poor. Through the eyes of award-winning authors, we see a changing China-from the Cultural Revolution to the country's infamous one-child policy-giving us a profound look at the evolution of a land that is at once ancient and modern.
