    Chinese girls demanding the world

    This is part of the great saga of a generation--the generation that came of age in the spring of 1989, discovered love, fear, and connection to the whole world. Liu captures a series of shifts, partly in the Chinese universe, and partly in her own emerging powers. There's the craving for recently suppressed culture, in which memorizing old Tang poems or reading the Dream of Red Mansions seems adventurous rather than traditional. There's the incredible purity and idealism of girlhood, which at first serves as the weapon of old fashioned innocence. Then it turns to a boldness that scorns security, and a different kind of adult appears.

    --author of A Galaxy of Immortal Women: The Yin Side of Chinese Civilization
