Interesting microcosm for the larger cultural and political movements going on in China during the time. Read as a school assignment.

A classic of Chinese "scar literature," which seems to have served as a sort of social catharsis by which the horrors of the Cultural Revolution were exorcised in the immediate post-Mao era. I read it to get a picture of what life was like in a small village of rural China during the Cultural Revolution, and it certainly provided that. And it definitely affected me, to the point that I had trouble putting it down. But I also felt it was manipulative (even in its naive prose style), and the entir [...]

At first glance, this book seems like it will only be filled with small, minor tales about life in a Chinese village. Boilerplate characters are introduced, the stage is set for soap-opera drama.

There are also subtle currents that are not quite obvious and maybe unintentional about how [...]

It is a new attempt with Chinese literature. It is a very good one though. there is a human aspect in it but mainly political. I've learned a lot about Chinese History and communism reading it.

Read this for my World Lit. class
