Peking, a thousand years old and more, is the setting for this novel about China by one of its best-known writers. Rickshaw Boy is Chinese in its plot, characers, and atmosphere. Its flavor is biting and strong. It is China toiling and sweating, China loving and suffering, hoping and blundering, falling and getting up, again and still again. And laughing too, whenever it can - deep earthy laughter. Translated into English from the Chinese by Evan King.
