This anthology comprises Chinese short-short story masterpieces written by literary-award winners. They tell heart-warming stories of love and generosity, as well as human weakness.


It is the third of an anthology trilogy of English translations that includes 92 Chinese stories written by 75 authors. It has been translated by the retired Canadian professor Harry J. Huang, PhD, who is a world-renowned Chinese-English translator, a fiction writer and translation studies scholar. The book is divided by theme into ten sections: “Serious Jokes in the Office,” “Wits at Risk,” “Philosophy at Work,” “The Young & the Old,” “Lovers’ Privacy,” “Patients in Need,” “Defying Disabilities,” “Artists’ Life,” “Animal World,” and “A Glance at Science Fiction.” Like the other two anthologies, this book includes both heartwarming stories and ones that expose human corruption. It contains graceful humor, poignant satire, and great wisdom.


This anthology features a unique supplementary section of essays written by prominent scholars who have studied the Chinese short-short story for many years. This is a book of contemporary literature. It is for the general public, but it can also be used as a textbook in literature courses in colleges and universities in the English-speaking countries.
