“Lao She’s great novel.”
The New York Times<_o3a_p>


A beautiful new translation of the classic Chinese novel from Lao She, one of the most acclaimed and popular Chinese writers of the twentieth century,  Rickshaw Boy chronicles the trials and misadventures of a poor Beijing rickshaw driver. Originally published in 1937, Rickshaw Boy—and the power and artistry of Lao She—can now be appreciated by a contemporary American audience.<_o3a_p>

Lao She (1898-1966) is one of the most acclaimed Chinese writers of the twentieth century. He is the author of numerous novels, short stories, and plays.

Editorial Reviews

“An impressive novel of an individual struggling against and defeated by a corrupt society. Recommended for readers who enjoy modern tragedies such as Jane Smiley’s A Thousand Acres.”
