产品描述

From Howard Goldblatt, the renowned translator of Chinese fiction, comes a collection of more than eighty short-short stories (also known as flash fiction, with many stories under 300 words), that encompass a wide range of styles, tones, themes, and effects. There are absurdities worthy of the likes of Gogol, Kafka, and Charles Addams; there are ironies, surprises, poignantly thoughtful observations, and statements; and there are autobiographical snippets, more revealing of attitude than time or place. In this debut work of fiction, Goldblatt, probably one of the best-known foreign literary figures in China and Taiwan and a leading figure in world literature, takes the reader from the Colorado Rockies to Scandinavia to China, with additional visits to unmapped, psychological locales, offering glimpses into the joys, cruelties, and absolute wonders of contemporary life. Though short, the language and the imagery demand a slow, careful reading to imagine the scene and to savor the carefully wrought language. In these diverse tales are hidden truths, fantasies, absurdities, lessons, and pleasure.
