    About this book

Here is the perfect introduction to contemporary fiction from the world's most spoken language. These eight short stories, with parallel translations, offer students at all levels the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of contemporary literature without having constantly to refer to a dictionary. Richly diverse in themes and styles, the stories are by both new and well-established writers and range from a story by Li Rui about the honest simplicity of a Shanxi farmer to a story by Ma Yuan exposing the seamy underside of contemporary urban society. Complete with notes, these selections make excellent reading in either language.
Existing for different languages, including Chinese, the collection 'Penguin Parallel Text' offers a selection of short stories by famous contemporary authors. This volume, consisting of eight bilingual 'Short Stories in Chinese', includes fictions by Bi Feiyu, Jia Pingwa, Tie Ning, Ma Yuan and Cao Naiqian, among others. This book is ideal to enter the world of Chinese Contemporary Literature and practice reading at the same time.
