Item description for Jumping Through Hoops: Autobiographical Stories by Modern Chinese Women Writers by Jing M. Wang...
Jumping through Hoops translates a diverse collection of stories about the experiences of Chinese women during World War II. Contemporaneous with Anne Franks Diary of a Young Girl, and originally published in 1945 as part of Xie Bingyings classic anthology N zuojia zizhuan xuanji (Selected autobiographical writings by women writers), these nine extraordinary narratives effectively bridge the gap between Chinese womens life-story writings in English from earlier periods and those from the post-Mao era.
