BOOK NOOK: ALL ABOUT BOOKS

Because I love to read and share, my aim is to promote reading and sharing one book to one person at a time. The name "Book Nook" came from a used bookstore I used to frequent in Tel Aviv while living in Israel.

BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS

Lu Hsun Selected Stories


Just hanging out with my new friend!

Most of these stories are fictional, but still requiring a decent background in Chinese history and some ability for literary analysis. I'm not even close to a complete understanding of many of them, but the insight these stories have given me into Chinese history have been among the most pleasurable.

This book is indispensable for anyone who wishes to understand China; Lu is a great Chinese writer.
