Inscription to a previous owner inside, otherwise a near fine copy. This is a selection of stories and reportage by seven contemporary Chinese women writers with a wide spectrum of experience. They present a good cross-section of life in China, writing mainly about the later part of the seventies, although looming large in the background is the "cultural revolution" which disrupted countless lives. With honesty, courage and sensibility they show us the new generation gap in the China of the early 1980s, the cynicism of some of the youth, the avid pursuit of knowledge and skills of others, the difficulties of young married couples in over-crowded cities, or of professional women who want at the same time to be good wives and mothers. A reporter describes her painstaking investigations to right a long-standing injustice. These themes, realistically dealt with, project the quality of life in China, the comradeship and love which lighten difficulties, and the growing sense of value of the individual.
