This is a book of of Chinese short stories, once labled as "poisonous weeds". They stirred controversey because they delt with the darker side of life- especially bureaucratic life - in the new state and with conflicts between private feelings and public duty. These writings were condemned and the young authors punished. The official verdicts had eventually been overturned, but the issues and problems raised in these stories are still alive.
