Naked earth by Eileen Chang

I discovered #changbecause I was interested in the story about the #anticommunist books she wrote under American auspices. If #nakedearth is #propaganda then it’s of the highest caliber possible. The characters are deep, complicated and suffering from alienation and existentialism. It’s at the end a sad and tragic #lovestory depicting a brutal regime in all its extremism. I think Chang perfectly conveys the message of us ultimately being all responsible for bringing upon us any extreme and brutal regime. I can’t wait to read more by her. #eileenchang #張煐 #張愛玲 #张爱玲 #赤地之戀 #shanghai#koreanwar #communist #agrarianreform#oppression #chineseliterature #revolution#ideals #nyrb @nyrbooks #上海市
