My Memories of Old Beijing is a classic work of famous authoress Lin Haiyin, which has been renowned in the literary circles for more than 30 years. Since its publication in 1960, it remains popular in Taiwan and also has a broad readership in mainland China. With her ethereal language and magical style of writing, Lin Haiyin, through the childish eyes of the protagonist -- Yingzi, observes the joys and sorrows, partings and reunions of the adult world, conveying a kind of unspeakable naivety, natural and unaffected, pouring out the complex emotions in the world. She nicely blends the scenery of southern Beijing as in the eyes of Yingzi in between the lines, showing the real, busy life of Beijing citizens, and sets up for readers a clear background of space-time background. In a hint of sadness, the book is filled with a strong poetic flavor, making one cant help ruminating on the deep meaning therein.
