Tiananmen Fictions Outside the Square

Product Description

By Belinda Kong
Associate Professor of Asian Studies and English

An exciting analysis of the myriad literary effects of Tiananmen, Tiananmen Fictions Outside the Square is the first full-length study of fictions related to the 1989 movement and massacre.  Belinda Kong spotlights key texts -- Gao Xingjian's Taowang, Ha Jin's The Crazed, Annie Wang's Lili, and Ma Jian's Beijing Coma -- written and published about the massacre from abroad.  Their outsider/distanced perspectives inform their work and reveal how diaspora writers continually reimagine Tiananmen's relevance to the post-1989 world at large.
