The Matchmaker, the Apprentice, and the Football Fan : More Stories of China by Wen Zhu( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Matchmaker, the Apprentice, and the Football Fan moves between anarchic campuses, infuriating communist factories, and the victims of China's economic miracle to showcase the absurdity, injustice, and socialist Gothic of everyday Chinese life. This new collection of short fiction establishes Zhu Wen as that rare creature among Chinese writers today: an author with both a fearless grasp of the chaotic violence of capitalist-Communist China and a sense of humor. In?The Football Fan," readers fall in with an intriguingly unreliable narrator who may or may not have killed his elde

I love dollars and other stories of China by Wen Zhu( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In five richly imaginative novellas and a short story, Zhu Wen depicts the violence, chaos, and dark comedy of China in the post-Mao era. A frank reflection of the seamier side of his nation's increasingly capitalist society, Zhu Wen's fiction offers an audaciously plainspoken account of the often hedonistic individualism that is feverishly taking root. Set against the mundane landscapes of contemporary China-a worn Yangtze River vessel, cheap diners, a failing factory, a for-profit hospital operating by dated socialist norms-Zhu Wen's stories zoom in on the often tragicomic minutiae of everyday life in this fast-changing country. With subjects ranging from provincial mafiosi to nightmarish families and oppressed factory workers, his claustrophobic narratives depict a spiritually bankrupt society, periodically rocked by spasms of uncontrolled violence. For example, I Love Dollars, a story about casual sex in a provincial city whose caustic portrayal of numb disillusionment and cynicism, caused an immediate sensation in the Chinese literary establishment when it was first published. The novella's loose, colloquial voice and sharp focus on the indignity and iniquity of a society trapped between communism and capitalism showcase Zhu Wen's exceptional ability to make literary sense of the bizarre, ideologically confused amalgam that is contemporary China. Julia Lovell's fluent translation deftly reproduces Zhu Wen's wry sense of humor and powerful command of detail and atmosphere. The first book-length publication of Zhu Wen's fiction in English, I Love Dollars and Other Stories of China offers readers access to a trailblazing author and marks a major contribution to Chinese literature in English

Wu shan yun yu = In expectation( Visual )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in Chinese and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A film about the expectations for life, love and happiness, where mostly only emptiness and unfulfilled wishes flourish. It is not for nothing that the English title is In Expectation. The background consists of a small town which is to be flooded to a depth of 175 metres (almost 570 feet) as a consequence of the Yangtsekiang dam project; so the buildings are already deserted, and reflect a place of muted hopelessness with their blank concrete walls which seem senseless. A film which knows how to develop momentum in all its simplicity, which we see all too seldom in such works. (from the Internet Movie Database)
