产品描述

Set in a hospital in rural China during World War II, this book provides a haunting window into the isolation and displacement faced by ordinary citizens during times of conflict. With comparisons to Chekhov’s Ward Number Six and Solzhenitsyn’s Cancer Ward, Ba Jin’s hospital ward is a dark corner where life and death intersect and the absurd is transformed into the comic. The Mandarin to English translation is beautifully performed by noted academics Howard Goldblatt and Haili Kong.

About the Author

Ba Jin is widely considered one of China’s greatest literary figures.
