Shen Congwen


Recommended Posts

Has anyone read anything by Shen Congwen (沈從文)? I'm thinking of having a go at either 邊城 (The Border Town) or 長河 (The Long River), which I think are his main novels.

I haven't found much information about the author, but from what little I've read, he seems to be one of the best 20th century Chinese writers. I would love to hear any opinions about him and his work.
