Old Floating Cloud : Two Novellas, Paperback / softback Book

Old Floating Cloud : Two Novellas Paperback / softback


Can Xue draws the reader into a world of the grotesque and the surreal, of uncertain spaces and indeterminate identities, of sexual menace and psychological disorientation.

These novellas are about life in post-Mao China, but not the China of social realism or of Western fantasy.

At the forefront of China's new literary trends, these two novellas-"Yellow Mud Street" and "Old Floating Cloud"-explore Chinese reality through images of the absurd, sudden and illogical juxtapositions, and the limitless transformations induced by a unique imagination.
