Journal Entry 1 by wingApoloniaXwing from Steglitz, Berlin Germany on Friday, August 03, 2012

7 out of 10

This is the beautiful story of three sisters in China, who go to the city of Nanjing as migrant workers to seek their fortunes - away from the poverty of their village. Xinran based the novel on her interviews with three young women, which makes it all the more interesting - it isn’t completely fictional. There is a lot of background information about Chinese politics, history and society interwoven with the plot. Of course the focus is on migration, and the huge differences within Chinese culture und society are described, the differences between big cities and rural villages, places that are worlds apart.
