9789004202269: Contemporary Chinese Fiction by Su Tong and Yu Hua: Coming of Age in Troubled Times (Sinica Leidensia)

The book explores the coming-of-age fiction of two of the most critically acclaimed and frequently translated contemporary Chinese authors, Yu Hua and Su Tong; it is the first in-depth book-length treatise in English about the contemporary Chinese Bildungsroman. Although various individual contemporary Chinese novelists and individual works of Chinese fiction have previously been discussed under the rubric of the Bildungsroman, none of these efforts has approached the level of comprehensive and comparative analysis that this book brings to the genre and its social contexts in contemporary China. This book will pique the interests not only of scholars and students of Chinese and comparative literature, but also of historians and social scientists with an interest in the region.

Review:

This book offers a welcome addition to the limited English-language scholarship on two of China s most important contemporary authors, Su Tong (1963-) and Yu Hua (1960-)...Li incorporates extended accounts of the writers lives, and quotations from interviews and essays. Sabina Knight, Smith College, The Journal of Asian Studies (May 2012)"
