In this captivating collection from the Shaanxi region, considered the cradle of Chinese civilization, twenty unique voices come together to illustrate a China caught between New World advancements and Old World traditions. From the homeland of China’s first dynasty and the world-famous terra-cotta warriors, these tales show rugged rural life colliding with fast-paced city life; hollow arranged marriages juxtaposed with torrid, forbidden love affairs; and the vanity of newly minted millionaires clashing with the desperation of the poor. Addressing issues as complex and captivating as the Cultural Revolution and the country’s infamous one-child policy, these award-winning authors give us a profound look at the evolution of a land at once ancient and modern.
