Chinese Characters. Chapter Preview: Another Swimmer

chinesecharacters:

When I first met He Shu, he wanted to know how my sister Ruo-Dan had died. He was painstakingly collecting historical facts and stories about the pitched battles between rival factions during the Cultural Revolution era in China, and he thought that my sister must have been killed in one such skirmish.

Read all of this chapter by Xujun Eberlein in Chinese Characters on the UC Press website.

I want to read this book! Check out the tumblr for a new collection of essays about people in China, Chinese Characters: Profiles of Fast-Changing Lives in a Fast-Changing Land. Also, Eberlein’s chapter is great.

A mysterious well-wisher in his old stomping grounds has left birthday greetings for Bo stenciled on bus schedules and handwritten on walls. More images at CDT Chinese.”
