21 st Century Chinese Literature Series, Chinese Literature to the West.
The theme of this book is "City". Recommended works show rich, broad and delicate expressions and grasps of urban life. They all live in major cities in contemporary China. Their writings have evolved from the twin cities of civic literature to the incarnation of multiple cities. Narrating, in its overall form, it forms a polygonal prism that can reflect the mirror image of many cities: from the narrow lanes, alleys, and courtyards, the writer's vision diffuses into the more prosperous sections of the city. The multi-dimensional and developed literary perspective explores the multitude of shaded world conditions in the city, explores the infinite "charisma" hidden in the city, and points to the vast expanse of human nature.
