MEDIA REVIEWS

'Taking a close look at Chinese literature in the post Cultural Revolution period as well as the era of economic takeoff, Huang deploys a very ingenious and provocative trope, that of the orphan pairing up with the bastard. Highlighting the self-contradictory nature and crisis-ridden search in writers such as Duo Duo, Wang Shuo, Zhang Chengzhi, and Wang Xiaobo, Huang's work is a comprehensive study of culturally orphaned and politically rebellious generations in search of their voice and identity.' - Ban Wang, Stanford University
