The Gourmet and Other Stories of Modern China

ISBN 9780930523381

“The dry delicacy of these stories is impressive, each a valuable channel into the art and life of modern China.” KIRKUS REVIEWS

Under Lu Wenfu's incisive yet tolerant eye, wonton sellers, rickshaw pullers, teachers, hedonists and bureaucrats all try to adapt to modern China's recurrent upheavals. Accent magazine (USA) calls this collection “some of the best writing from the new China”.
