Preface

Ginny told Zi Wei Jin I first read Ginny the manuscript, is in the gap at an academic seminar. Listen with a personal expression style without substantial new academic point of view feel really boring, back to the hotel room, open this book look up, often inside a be full of wit and humour story amused be overcome by one's feelings to laugh out loud. To make a story well meaning -- at least feel meaningful, is relatively easy, and told a story interesting, funny, humorous and lack of texture is difficult, especially to express profound thoughts in a relaxed, humorous state, this is the highest realm about the. Ginny Weasley reached this state, at least one I see now. I think Jenny is directly used to "tell" and communicate with about or, at the same timeAn expression of her personality, and the difference between the story or narrative way. Then, Ginny tells us what? Ginny in North America for fifteen years of life, her life was cut into several pieces: childhood hometown, higher education and the work of more than 10 years, overseas resident life. If divided simply into three pieces of words, apparently, three pieces of writing is to care and the integration of live in North America after. A few years ago, I heard that Chinese writers in North America, Ginny quite fire, frankly, that's when I with the concept of "American" is fuzzy, such as the "North" understood America north, then check the specialized information, know that "American" is "North America", east of Cape St. Charles (west longitude 55 ° 40', 52 ° 13'), South to 马里亚托 angle (west longitude 81 ° 05', 7 ° 12'). Obviously, the "North American" belonging to the foreign language, although the foreign language is Chinese way, according to our academic habits of the division, we generally do not use the concept, like today, "northeast" literature has not formed a systematic combing. Obviously, "American Literature" is a new phenomenon of Chinese literature, washing behind this phenomenon significance may take time, but the "place" is beyond all dispute fact. Ginny as a member of Chinese writers in North America, her understanding of North America is profound and objective, it is sharp and fine, I have such speculation, perhaps because of her "-- from the perspective of the third party" in the original living resources, and not for the new world culture implant bone like harmony, so the detached and freedom of expression. Of course, this expression is detached and free boundary, for example, she more attention or in the Chinese context within the category of people, things, objects, even in North America, the aim is to support Chinese reading groups, cultural genes determine her heart still stays in the entity and virtual hometown, hometown. Also known as "a person with a sense of belonging and a sense of belonging as a foil" ([and] Northrop Fry: "the Modern Century"). In Ginny's pen, there are a lot of China concern of reality, also has her own and the surrounding Chinese to suffer in North America culture shock, such as the other name is "murderer" without knowing it, the formal social occasions for wearing the wrong clothes embarrassment, the students were questioned as gay and so on, through a specific example, Ginny Weasley will minor America culture show in front of readers. The cross cultural section of the writing makes a certain style, value expression possible new. Notable is, Ginny tells the process, the story behind the strength. As the modernity and the age difference, that is to say, the progress is not in progress, but his own progress forces released, most significant symbol is technology, when we sit in the intelligent building technology and society, people have all kinds of connections, we say the Han Dynasty, Tang Dynasty than progress without a doubt, but, we said we than the people of that time more perfect, more wisdom, a better quality of life, I'm afraid is more complicated. Most of the time, our lives are caused at the time of the dislocation behavior paralysis thought. Ginny tells us, maybe they ignored the thinking, neglected details, and these, it is the most rare. Therefore, I look like this, this is a rare book, as K Rana, in the "hearer of the word" said: across time and space, people have met.

Chapter excerpt

The copyright page: I asked her: "is there a relationship that you not graduated from high school and smoking marijuana?" She wants to say never mind, a relationship should be the car. "I want to have a car at that time, many brothers and sisters at home, parents can't give everyone to buy a car, so I wanted to make money to buy a car, and I study result is very poor, learning to be utterly ignorant of, go out to work to make money after high school, the school more rejection, simply do not." "Wait until many years later, I really regret it. Heart sometimes complain that their parents don't teach children more, then at least can force me to finish high school. I'm not that kind of not listening to parents of children, but they don't care. I can understand them now, and they work very hard on the farm, to a family to feed the task was finished, no energy to care too much." She heaved a deep sigh, turned and looked away: "I blame myself." Turned to her and said: "I for their children is always strict discipline, if they are in high school want the car, I borrow money to buy them, can't afford to buy a new can go to buy a used car, don't let them therefore neglect their studies. Because after seeing some children contact with marijuana, a get out of hand, lives destroyed in the above, so to sell marijuana people cherish an undying. Wait until the children reach adolescence, I must tell them these things, let them know what is really mature, to be responsible for their own." A few days ago, she sent me mail, said the little son graduated from high school have been admitted to the police academy. Her boss last year has become a police.
