I\'ve just read a novel by the female writer 尹丽川, titled 《贱人》. I wish to know the opinion (about this novel) of anybody who has read the book. I hope this topic is not awkward... I didn\'t found much about the writer and her works in the net, actually I\'m pretty eager to know how she is considered in mainland China. Many thanks for your attention...

My rant: Nov 15, 2002

This is not a specific comment on Ms. Yin or her book, but a broad condemnation of a class of female authors known as the \"babe writers (美女作家)\": They are rebels without a cause, eager to break with old values only to end up with no values. They may hold up cultural nihilism as a badge of high honor, but, to me, it is just intellectual inanity. Yuppie whore airheadedness, plainly put. If some pimple-faced college kid manages to overcome the belittlement and contempt these writers often show for men and jerks off to one of the ubiquitous sex depictions, more power to him.

Now, have a nice weekend, y\'all, O.K.?

Beware of Shit! Nov 16, 2002

I looked through The selected Poems of Yin Lichuan on the webpage-www.ceqq.com/MSJY/sx-yinlichuan.htm, and I know for sure what kind of shit she could produce out of her \"babe\" head, as the Americans often say \"shit happens\". I could not possibly match itranzlate\'s bitter rant, however I still want to shriek some verbal abuse here. This Miss Yin was definitely not writing poetry in Chinese, she was raping as a whore the Chinese language which has such a glorious and beautiful past, she was displaying a behaviouristic \"art\" of vomitting her rubbish to attract attention of the worst mob of the crowd. Disgusted by the broad\'s \"poems\", I\'d rather not read jianren\'s jianren at all. If God is dead, nothing evil is impossible. If Taste perishes, garbage reigns.

Sorry, but I have to.

Warning: Don\'t ruin your weekend by reading it!
