Reviews

This anthology is a great introduction to some of the very best in Chinese language fiction, poetry, and essays.--Terry Hong "The Bloomsbury Review "
Perhaps no one could be better suited to expanding the canonical limits than Lau and Goldblatt... this volume, with its Columbia label, its editors' stature, and its certifiable claim to be the first comprehensive anthology of its kind, cannot but achieve an instant authority.--Voice Literary Supplement
All the important modern writers are included... the overall quality of this volume is very high, making it easy to recommend this book for anyone interested in modern China and its development.--New Asia Review
This work is likely to remain the definitive survey for its field.--Choice
