Chinese Book of the Day: Three Sisters by Bi Feiyu

Three Sisters by Bi Feiyu in Chinese

Bi Feiyu’s Three Sisters(玉米) begins with the birth of the Wang family’s eighth child, a long sought-after boy. But the stars of this novel are not boys, but women—three of Little Eight’s sisters. From the petty treachery of the village to the slogans of the Cultural Revolution to the harried pace of city life, these three women strive to change the course of their destinies as they battle against an infinite ocean of people, in a China that does not truly belong to them. Three Sisters is an irreplaceable portrait of contemporary Chinese culture— of lives unknown, but immediately familiar. This book was the winner of the Man Asian Literary Prize in 2010.  Now you can read Three Sisters in the original Chinese version.
