Stories of Shanghai

Years of Red Dust, Stories of Shanghai by Qin Xialong is collection of short stories following the lives of resident in the Red Dust Lane with lessons of History.  A fascinating read and insight into the evolution and happenings in and of the Lane residents, Shanghai and of China.  While I felt that the artistic liberties had been taken somewhat extremely in few places, the sayings and proverbs is that of my homeland itself.
