Product Description

Review

"Better than that of any other writer, Mu Shiying's fiction encapsulates the cosmopolitan life of 1930s Shanghai (with its foreign concessions, cinemas, caf's and cabarets) that underlay modernist Chinese writing. Andrew Field's book is exciting not only because it is a new appreciation of this writer but because, through its translations of Mu's stories, it reveals the extent to which Shanghai-based writing was inspired by the styles of international modernism." -- Lynn Pan, author of Shanghai Style and Old Shanghai: Gangsters in Paradise

5.0 out of 5 stars Shang Hai of the 1930s 7 Sept. 2015
By R. H. Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A fascinating collection, whether it is read as literature or as an historical source. I cannot speak to the translation as I do not read Chinese, but the language is lively, readable, and often poetic. Mu paints a portrait of one social milieu--the night club scene--of the Shang Hai of his times. As Andrew David Field is the leading English language historian of that scene, he was a perfect choice for both the translation and the introduction. I would have preferred more stories be included but I will take what I can get.
