Set in China’s Jiangnan area in the early 1960s, The Straw Hous centers around ordinary village life and follows a young boy named Sang Sang. Within the seemingly simplistic life of everyday China emerge several interwoven, deeply moving stories which bid farewell to the innocence of childhood, and embrace-albeit reluctantly-the responsibilities of adolescence. First published in China in 1997, this fiction has been called a landmark work in Chinese children’s literature.
