Lu Xun was the pen name of Zhou Shuren (1881-1936), who is one of the major Chinese writers of the 20th century. Considered by many to be the founder of modern Chinese literature, he wrote in baihua (the vernacular) as well as classical Chinese. Lu Xun was a short story writer, editor, translator, critic, essayist and poet. In the 1930s he became the titular head of the Chinese League of the Left-Wing Writers in Shanghai. Lu Xun's works exerted a very substantial influence after the May Fourth Movement to such a point that he was highly acclaimed by the Communist regime after 1949. Mao Zedong himself was a lifelong admirer of Lu Xun's works. Lu Xun's works became known to English readers through numerous translations, beginning in 1960 with Selected Stories of Lu Xun translated by Yang Hsien-yi and Gladys Yang, and more recently in 2009 when Penguin Classics published a complete anthology of his fiction titled The Real Story of Ah-Q and Other Tales of China: The Complete Fiction of Lu Xun, of which Jeffrey Wasserstrom said "could be considered the most significant Penguin Classic ever published."

Confucius Says is a novel about caregiving for elderly parents. Cary, a middle-aged Chinese American, was brought up to believe in the Confucian virtue of filial piety: serving one抯 parents is a sacred duty that requires extreme sacrifice. Thus when Cary抯 parents become too feeble to live on their own, she takes them in with the blessing of her Caucasian husband, Steve.

But the more Cary tries to please her parents, the crabbier they become. A string of crises drives Cary to the verge of a meltdown. She finally confronts the source of her troubles: Confucius. She reads the Book on Filial Piety to see what exactly Confucius says about the subject. To her surprise, she finds his sayings are quite the opposite of what she抯 been taught to believe. Liberated from her misconceptions, Cary rediscovers filial piety as a universal formula for a functional, loving modern family.

This book contains selected poems of Yan Zhi, whose position as a 搒urfer in the currents of economic change has given him a special vantage point for reading the times. He turns out to be a far-ranging poet who not only registers the temper of our times but also mines his private, inward experience for inspiration. Yan Zhi is a recorder of urban alienation and the new unsure ground we are moving towards. Life in large metropolises is taking us all into new territory, in which the individual can often feel bewildered, isolated and full of nameless apprehension for what lies ahead. Yan Zhi likes to wear more than one hat in life, so as to get a full taste of life抯 vividness. His wish to taste life deeply seems the tendency of a poet rather than of a businessman; yet in the case of Yan Zhi, these categories cannot be clearly separated.

Born in Hubei province, China, Yan Zhi started his literary creation in 1988. In addition to hundreds of poems and short stories that appeared in many national and regional publications, including the People抯 Daily, Literary Gazette, and Poetry, he has published several volumes of poetry and novels. Yan Zhi won first place in the poetry competition sponsored by Poetry magazine in 2008, and the Second Xu Zhimo Poetry Competition award, among others. His most recent publication was long poetry Elegies and Memorial, which was published in 2010 simultaneously in mainland China and Taiwan.

Denis Mair, born 1951 in America, is a translator, poet and Sinologist. He holds an M.A. in Chinese from Ohio State University. He has translated the work of numerous Chinese poets for Western readers. His own poetry collection is Man Cut in Wood.

September's Fable tells the story of the rise and fall of a Chinese coastal village through its difficult formation, hard existence and inevitable disintegration. Spanning approximately sixty years, the novel is a rich and intriguing tapestry of life and death in rural China. Somewhat in the tradition of William Faulkner and Gabriel Garc韆 M醨quez, September's Fable weaves history, politics, and folklore close together to bring an enchanting way of storytelling that dexterously touches on such universal themes as love and hate, war and revolution, city and country, the noble and the ugly, and, more importantly, the inevitability of the old superseded by the new and young.

Seven Kinds of Mushrooms: A Novel of the Cultural Revolution

A satirical deconstruction of high Maoist role models and rhetoric, Seven Kinds of Mushrooms is set in a remote forestry station annex in Shandong province during the Cultural Revolution era in China. Mushrooms weaves a vivid story of political intrigue, murder, romance and lust. Drawing on the repertories of Magic Realism and surrealism, the author masterfully turns Maoist stereotypes on their head, presenting us with an array of compromised, flawed heroes and pathetic, inept villains.

The main protagonist, Old Ding, is an illiterate peasant who sees himself as the hero in a revolutionary morality play of his own making. He is the consummate peasant storyteller: ignorant of the world outside, but possessed of fantastic imagination and a knack for creating engaging, suspenseful tales. The author is at his sardonic, perspicacious best in this novel that poses universal questions about the use and abuse of language in the pursuit of power.

Born in Shandong province in the mid-1950s, Zhang Wei is one of the most prolific writers in Mainland China today. He has won over thirty national literary prizes, including some of the most prestigious in China. Although he has been compared to such Western writers as William Faulkner and Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Zhang is unique for the breadth and inclusiveness of his literary and intellectual reach. A liberal and original thinker, as well as an idealistic one, he focuses his concern on culture, especially on the issue of Chinese cultural identity in the post-revolutionary era.

Terence Russell is Associate Professor of Chinese at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada. He has published numerous articles on both Mainland Chinese and Taiwanese writers, especially relating to issues of cultural identity. Dr. Russell also has a strong interest in translation and translation theory. His full-length translation of Zhang Wei抯 September抯 Fable appeared in 2007.

The story unfolded around Zhou Puyuan, a male character who had been to Germany to study. Cold-blooded, selfish and hypocritical, he was like a dictator of a dark dynasty in his home. Zhou Puyuan is a well-portrayed character in Thunderstorm. All sinful acts were attributable to his domestic autocracy. The profound significance of Thunderstorm lies in its exposure of the close political and ideological bond between Chinese capitalists and the deep-rooted feudal traditions.

Lu Xun was the pen name of Zhou Shuren (1881-1936), who is one of the major Chinese writers of the 20th century. Considered by many to be the founder of modern Chinese literature, he wrote in baihua (the vernacular) as well as classical Chinese. Lu Xun was a short story writer, editor, translator, critic, essayist and poet. In the 1930s he became the titular head of the Chinese League of the Left-Wing Writers in Shanghai. Lu Xun's works exerted a very substantial influence after the May Fourth Movement to such a point that he was highly acclaimed by the Communist regime after 1949. Mao Zedong himself was a lifelong admirer of Lu Xun's works. Lu Xun's works became known to English readers through numerous translations, beginning in 1960 with Selected Stories of Lu Xun translated by Yang Hsien-yi and Gladys Yang, and more recently in 2009 when Penguin Classics published a complete anthology of his fiction titled The Real Story of Ah-Q and Other Tales of China: The Complete Fiction of Lu Xun, of which Jeffrey Wasserstrom said "could be considered the most significant Penguin Classic ever published."
