Pearl S Buck, who grew up in rural China as the daughter of American missionaries, writes convincingly about village life, and the hierarchies and rules governing their world.
He is the author of over ten books in China, the most recent of which are The New Emperors: Qian himself, educated in France and the UK, was multi-lingual and someone who was to live until His work is a wonderful antidote to the idea that Chinese literature in the modern era was unable to embrace the challenges of modernity.
And it stands as a moving final moment of intellectual hope before the political coercion and impoverishment of language after Brutally realistic in its accounts of abortion, prostitution and abuse, it also has a wonderful central character whose ability to survive and finally prosper is a testament to the spirit of modern Chinese migrants.
This is the greatest portrayal of the Sinologist as a sort of modern monk removed from the world ever written. Shelly Bryant Shelly Bryant is the author of six volumes of poetry and a pair of travel guides for the cities of Suzhou and Shanghai.

|Classic Chinese Novels - Wikipedia||Propaganda Machine "The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread" In America, John Swinton, then the pre-eminent New York journalist, was the guest of honour at a banquet given him by the leaders of his craft.|
|Recommended||One of these propaganda publications Quotations from Chairman Mao which later became known as the Little Red Book contained quotes from Mao Zedong and was distributed to every Chinese citizen. The history of the Red Book provides one of the best ways in which to analyze Chinese propaganda during the Cultural Revolution and see the ways in which the Chinese government was able to produce and effectively indoctrinate the Chinese people with Mao Zedong Thought.|

Also, I had not planned to include any works I had translated. But, all that considered, I am still placing this in the number one spot on my list because it is such a good read. It is a dystopian novel addressing the history of China since Playing for Thrills by Wang Shuo Interesting for its insights into the lives of young people during the Cultural Revolution, a generation that was left largely on their own to almost raise themselves as their parents were sent down.
It is something of a confusing narrative, but that is probably an apt depiction of the times. Cat Country by Lao She A favourite of mine because it is an early instance of Chinese science fiction, written in a way that partakes of the golden age of science fiction internationally.
It is a story that sweeps across the difficult early days of New China, depicting the resilient spirit and pragmatism that many see as a defining feature of the Chinese people. Sometimes criticised for focusing on personal rather than political stories, I think this is part of what makes her work so successful.
Becoming Madame Mao by Anchee Min Not entirely successful in presenting a sympathetic view of the oft-vilified Jiang Qing, the novel at least offers something of an alternative view of what might have gone on in the mind of the only female member of The Gang of Four.
Not exactly an easy read, but engaging. Its truth is not that of memoir or history, but of fiction. The huge number of characters and the confusing ways they are connected to one another is indicative of the complex web of politicking in China — not just by civil servants, but also in many offices and private institutions.
She has contributed to the Times Literary Supplement, the Financial Times and The Spectator, and read for a prominent literary scout for four years. The Last Quarter of the Moon by Chi Zijian This is an evocative masterpiece by a young, award-winning writer who gives us an atmospheric, allegorical folk-tale of the Evenki, a nomadic tribe that have not kept pace with the world.
Their lives like those of their reindeer are irretrievably disrupted by the forces of modernity. Her ethereal presence and memory, and strength of will, allows her to speak for the tribe, breathing life into their collective memories. This is a beautiful story: The Incarnations tells the story of a modern-day taxi driver in Beijing, who becomes stalked by an anonymous letter writer, who gradually reveals to him his past lives.
So what we have is a series of succinct tales that bleed into one another, that reverberate against one another.
The past in this novel overlays the present, and vice versa — the whole novel is a palimpsest of history, echoing across time. Our Man in China by Ming Liu Ming writes about the world she knows the uber wealthy entrepreneurial set in China and the people who inhabit it, or want to.
This is part Made in Chelsea part Great Gatsby, with a healthy wash of Graham Green sensibility to stop it from becoming farcical or pastiche. This is a very interesting and revealing novel, of its time and, as a result, timeless.This Is the Time Vietnam Needs Committed, Ethical Journalists the Most It's detrimental to society if the public, rather than advocating for journalists, backs away from the conversation.
The earliest known written records of the history of China date from as early as BC, from the Shang dynasty (c. – BC). Ancient historical texts such as the Records of the Grand Historian (c.
BC) and the Bamboo Annals ( BC) describe a Xia dynasty (c. – BC) before the Shang, but no writing is known from the period, and Shang writings do not indicate the existence.
