I would like to see more threads like this. They all die far too quickly. You know why: only the international public reads. Chinese in general don't.

Recently someone started a thread about a Chinese literary form called the "wuxua". These are stories that to me read like children stories with metaphysical happenings that defy reason.

I actually have a collection of such stories. still, I prefer my current read, "Portrait of a Lady".

WHY would you think this? It is quite absurd to  say 'books are for prisoners'.

The Bible

That is a good one by perhaps giving faith and hope under these dire circumstances.

One way of getting to know a people and their country is for me to read fiction by their authors. The more different countries you take a personal interest in the more books you will want to read.
