    富萍 author Wang Anyi (READ) So many works of historical fiction revolve around the limited roles women had for well most of recorded history In fiction we see women break through these limits to find careers or true love or adventure etc In Wang Anyi’s Fu Ping translated by Howard Goldblatt we are presented with a similar scenario The titular character Fu Ping has traveled to Shanghai from her village after sort of making a deal to marry a young man She doesn’t

A charming portrait into daily life in China during the years following the Revolution which is perhaps surprising in how low key the action is and how relatively unaffected the lives of ordinary people were That will I m sure have changed with the onset of the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution but for now people seemed to go about their daily business It s especially atmospheric when discussing life on the scows of the harbour area in Shanghai while the complex processes of internal migration are also well described That said the narrative is somewhat pedestrian at times and this isn t one for those who like crash bang wallop action
