About this item

Fiction. Translated from the Chinese by Darryl Sterk. Winner of the 2017 Blue Metropolis Literary Diversity Award. The first book in English by acclaimed Chinese-Canadian writer Xue Yiwei, SHENZHENERS is inspired by the young city of Shenzhen, a market town north of Hong Kong that became a Special Economic Zone in 1980 as an experiment in introducing capitalism to Communist China. A city in which everyone is a newcomer, Shenzhen has grown astronomically to become a major metropolitan centre. Hailed as a Chinese Dubliners, the original collection was named one of the Most Influential Chinese Books of the Year in 2013, with most of the stories appearing in Best Chinese Stories.

"What Xue Yiwei does is shine an unflinching light on the lives of people in contemporary China, and, in doing so, questions the price that China is paying for this 'modern' society—a question that China (and perhaps all of us) ignores at its peril."—Judy Fong Bates, Literary Review of Canada
