Buying a fishing rod for my grandfather : stories by Xingjian Gao( Book )

76 editions published between 1988 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 1,312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written between 1983 and 1990, these translated stories take as their themes the fragility of love and life, and the haunting power of memory. In "The Temple" the narrator's acute and mysterious anxiety overshadows the "delirious happiness" of an outing with his new wife on their honeymoon. In "The Cramp" a man narrowly escapes drowning in the sea, only to find that no one even noticed his absence. In "The Accident" a bus hits a cyclist and, as in stop-action film, the chaotic aftermath gives way to a calm, ordinary street comer with no trace of the previous drama. In the title story the narrator attempts to "unburden myself of homesickness" only to find himself lost in a labyrinth of childhood memories. Everywhere in this collection are powerful psychological portraits of characters whose unarticulated hopes and fears betray the never-ending presence of the past in their present lives."--Jacket

Of mountains and seas : a tragicomedy of the Gods in three acts by Xingjian Gao( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of Mountains and Seas is one of the most spirited and fun-filled plays written by Gao Xingjian, 2000 Nobel Laureate in Literature. Based on the ancient text The Classic of Mountains and Seas, the play re-enacts the classical world of Chinese mythology, traversing the creation of humans to the beginning of Chinese dynastic history. It is a world of magical powers and child-like wonderment, peopled with ghosts, ghouls and monsters, and comprised of the famous Battle of Zhuo Lu between Chi You and the Yellow Emperor, the shooting down of the nine of the ten suns by Yi the Archer, and the theft of no-death drug by Chang E, who then flies away to the moon and becomes the Moon Goddess." "In employing song and dance, acrobatics and other Chinese folk art forms, the play carries on Gao's search for a "total theater" and a new form of modern Eastern drama. Of Mountains and Seas is also an ambitious attempt by Gao Xingjian to construct a grand narrative of Chinese mythology, wrestling it back from the contaminations of ideology, politics and didacticism so as to restore its authenticity. With this innocence and purity of origin, Gao insists, the play offers a glimpse of the collective consciousness of the Chinese race and human nature in general."--BOOK JACKET
