These women, who continue to write in their native language, envision themselves as the literary mediators between their lost past and their newly adopted homeland. They compare each of these worlds in terms of the demons with which they have wrestled for identity, recognition, and freedom.
The book is of interest not only to those with a particular interest in the phenomenon of these Chinese exiled intellectual emigres and their role in the influence on the development of Chinese literature, but to those who seek to understand the development of women's studies and world literature as a whole, and the influence of East-West literary relations in particular.
