About the novella

Fang Fang is a representative new realistic novelist. The Scenery is one of her representative works and won the National Award for Best Novellas. It focuses on the living conditions of the underclass urban poor around Henanpengzi in Wuhan. From the view of a dead infant, the author portrays, in cold, sharp and ironic style, many people’s humiliating, ugly and morbid lives under the pressures of the harsh living environment, and reveals the black hole in the soul of those people who envy the dead infant, an abyss more horrible than their hopeless economic situations and humble social status.
