The Matchmaker, the Apprentice, and the Football Fan More Stories of China by Wen Zhu ( )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 447 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

This Chinese satire effectively skewers rural village life as it tells the tale of a shy 30-year old signal station manager Mai Quiang, a resident of Wu Shan, a dull little burg located along the Yangste River. His job is to change a sign that shows boats which way to travel on the river. One day his pal Wu Ban and his girl friend Lily drop by for a visit. At Wu's seeming insistence, Lily and Mai end up in bed. Meanwhile back in town, small hotel manager Lao Mo finds himself increasingly attracted to the widow Chen Quing, his desk manager.

I love dollars and other stories of China by Wen Zhu ( Book )
7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 9 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."--Publisher's description
