Reviews

"The author's efforts to theorize and to place Chinese fiction in the 'transnational' context are refreshing and should be applauded. Many of his arguments are provocative or thought-provoking, compelling us to rethink many important issues in the study of Chinese literature and particularly Chinese fiction and to confront some thorny questions, such as that of the generic nature of Chinese fiction."
