Summary
"This is the first book-length study of the Chinese new historical fiction (NHF), whose rise marks the birth of a new historical discourse that interrogates the telos and the timetable of the current discourse of 'Chinese modernity' as well as the earlier 'revolutionary history'. In an attempt to foreground the significance and the generic renovations of this new discourse, the author contends that the NHF has emerged as an independent rival discourse which competes with the official historiography for the right to writing the Chinese history." "Covering a wide range of contemporary Chinese writers including Zhang Chengzhi, Han Shaogong, Wang Xiaobo, Mo Yan, Su Tong, Wang Anyi, Chen Zhongshi, Ge Fei, Li Rui, and Yu Hua, this volume is for all those who are interested in late twentieth-century Chinese literature, intellectual and cultural history, comparative literature and cultural studies."--Jacket
