Journal Entry 1 by yogie from Stockholm, Stockholm Sweden on Sunday, August 3, 2014
From Unabridged Bookstore, my neighborhood book store:

"In these spellbinding stories, Yiyun Li, a Hemingway Foundation/PEN Award winner, a MacArthur Fellow, and one of The New Yorker’s top 20 fiction writers under 40, gives us exquisite stories in which politics and folklore magnificently illuminate the human condition. A professor introduces her middle-aged son to a favorite student, unaware of the student’s true affections. A lifelong bachelor finds kinship with a man wrongly accused of an indiscretion. Six women establish a private investigating agency to battle extramarital affairs in Beijing. Written in lyrical prose and with stunning honesty, Gold Boy, Emerald Girl introduces us to worlds strange and familiar, creating a mesmerizing and vibrant landscape of life."

This was an interesting delve into Chinese culture. There is definitely a theme of loneliness in these short stories. The characters are quirky and have a lot of personality. The stories are really well written and well crafted. I recommend reading the conversation with the author at the end of the book.
