A collection of succinct sketches of the native soil and a nostalgic symphony of emotional attachment, The Time River, delineated with the liveliest and most unsparing strokes of the pen, reintroduces the unbleached beauty of China’s village, once considered backward, ignorant and rude. In the calm yet powerful narratives of the author, the small villages of central China, along with their inconsequential inhabitants and their simple stories, radiate a vigorous sheen of life and etch themselves into our memory as treasures for us to cherish.
