Lao She is widely acknowledged as one of the most important Chinese writers of the 20th century. Her novels, short stories, and essays explore the human condition, often with a wry and ironic perspective. Camel Xiangzi tells the story of a camel who yearns to be a horse. Despite his best efforts, he is never able to overcome his stubbornness and sense of inferiority. The story is poignant and humorous, and Lao She's deft handling of both plot and characterization makes it a delight to read.; 8vo; 236 pages; TBC FSA.
