Product Description

Review

Beautiful and thought-provoking.

(Los Angeles Times)

The pieces are varied, lively, often charming, and occasionally brilliant.

(Perry Link New York Review of Books)

It's well worth dipping into (repeatedly).

(The Complete Review)

Beautiful and thought-provoking... A breeze of aesthetic freedom flows through all of them, making them fun to read.

(Susan Salter Los Angeles Times)

Funny, touching, intriguing and sometimes very beautifully... They are tiny vignettes of Chinese life in all its entire chaotic splendour.

(Jenny Niven Time Out Beijing)

Loud Sparrows is a delightful collection of short-shorts.

(Steve Noyes The Vancouver Sun)

Review

Loud Sparrows, with its balanced treatment of short-shorts from China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong and its inclusion of works by well-known fiction writers, offers a major step forward in a largely untouched field of Chinese literature available in translation. It shows off short-shorts at their finest-carefully crafted works that take advantage of the challenge of the tight space limitations inherent to the genre.

(Steven L. Riep, Brigham Young University)
