Better than that of any other writer, Mu Shiying's fiction encapsulates the cosmopolitan life of 1930s Shanghai (with its foreign concessions, cinemas, cafés and cabarets) that underlay modernist Chinese writing. Andrew Field's book is exciting not only because it is a new appreciation of this writer but because, through its translations of Mu's stories, it reveals the extent to which Shanghai-based writing was inspired by the styles of international modernism. (Lynn Pan, author of Shanghai Style and Old Shanghai: Gangsters in Paradise)
A much-needed volume that will help considerably in making Mu's writing more widely accessible. (Christopher Rosenmeier H-Asia)
