Love in a Fallen City
by Eileen Chang Karen S. Kingsbury (Translator)
- 338 PAGES
Eileen Chang wrote these four novellas and two stories in Japanese-occupied Shanghai in the 1940s. Canonized in China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, Chang has been little known in the U.S. (where she spent the last half of her life, after fleeing the People's Republic), but this collection should go far to change that. Her work is a revelation, poised tellingly between Confucian tradition and Western modernity, like their author herself.
