20 Fragments of a Ravenous Youth

Brand: Vintage Classics   |   Status: Hết hàng

"It's really striking - the structure of the book in particular really helps here. Everything seems very emblematic, very important, in a way that it wouldn't if it wasn't so fragmented. There's no dead weight. & it made me feel like I was getting to know a lot about Fenfang when really, the readers here get shown very little. I barely know anything about Ben, or who he is. But then neither does Fenfang... he's always far away from her. She doesn't know why they still call each other. But sometimes, that's what people do. It's like a novel constructed of short stories - you get such a sense of everything around what you see." - Amazon Reviewer

'She's no good, that girl. Much too individualistic'

This is the story of Fenfang who, determined to carve out a life more independent than her provincial roots, gets a job as a film extra in Beijing. But living a modern life is not as easy as it looks in this tumultuous, messy city. Grappling with the narrow world of cinema, an outworn Communist regime, and the city's far-from-progressive attitudes to women, charismatic Fenfang finds her true freedom in the one place she never expected.

20 Fragments of a Ravenous Youth is a sparkling and wry coming-of-age story about the changing identity of women in contemporary China.

Meet ten of literature's most iconic heroines, jacketed in bold portraits by female photographers from around the world.
