how was it? 


In the essay, 张爱玲 discusses some of her novels and what kind of writer she is. She explains why she shies away from good-evil themes in her work, contrasts her way of writing with writers of other literary schools, and discusses romantic love in China. It was OK.

It was a real shock when I read that - I couldn't believe it had happened.  I skipped ahead and skimmed further parts of the book to see if it was some sort of mistake, and came across a passage where 鸣凤 and 觉慧 were out on a boat talking (or something) and was relieved that maybe I just hadn't fully understood the previous part and that it would all work out. Turns out I understood it perfectly and that the latter bit was just a dream.
