Even for a family like ours, with a mother who rarely talked to people and a father who was, in my mother’s words, quiet as a dead log, stories would come in eavesdropped form while I waited in lines-and it seems that I spent my childhood perpetually in lines, waiting for eggs, cooking oil, meat, soap, milk, and other rationed goods

I think Yiyun Li is one of the best writers of fiction about China working today. This collection of short stories, her second, is filled with memorable characters and plot lines that reflect a deep understanding of modern Chinese culture. I suppose that many Westerners who have not been to China or know little of 20th century Chinese cultural history might have trouble understanding the motivation of some of her characters, but her stories are told with such force that one has to appreciate her skill in telling a story. The first and longest story in this collection, "Kindness"is a devastating story a woman who's loneliness and lack of emotional warmth is painstakingly divulged as she narrates her life's story. "Prison" is a story of the clash between Western and Chinese cultural values in the persons of two women who are brought together by a tragedy one suffers. I don't want to ruin your enjoyment of the story by giving you more details- just read it. I really love this lady's writing and cannot recommend it strongly enough.

Every story in this masterful collection is pretty freaking depressing. They are all love stories, but they're also about loneliness, loss, and growing older. So why am I such a fan of them even thought they're Debbie Downers? The writing is BEAUTIFUL. So rich and lyrical. It took me a while to get through this average-size collection because these are not the kind of stories you can rush through...you need to pause between them and take time to reflect on them before moving on. I really enjoyed the book and look forward to reading more works by this author.

I needed this book fast because a scheduling change thrust me into a course which uses it. Amazon's price was the lowest, and delivery was fast. GOLD BOY, EMERALD GIRL presents well crafted poetry useful for discussion with students about literary techniques. Yiyun Li is a master of the art of poetry. Highly recommend for instructors, students, and other readers.

I enjoyed these short stories thoroughly! And then I gave the book to my brother who lived in China for three years.

Beautifully written stories. I gave a copy to a dear friend who mentored me through grad school and he loved it, too. As a busy working mom, I appreciate a book that takes me into another time and place with effortless transition to calm my nerves! Her characters are real people sharing their thoughts and experience. Very creative and talented author! Look forward to reading more!

Writing is OK but stories are not good. But I still enjoyed them.

I had no expectations about this book I read for a book group. The stories were engaging and an interesting insight into parts of the Chinese revolution. It made for a lively discussion.
Good insight into modern day China.
