Golden Age: First Chapters - Henson & Bevir

By Rachel Henson, published September 2, 2007, 7:19p.m.

It was really getting on her nerves that so many fit and healthy men came to her for treatment, not because there was anything wrong with them, but because they wanted a look at the slag. I was the exception because my back genuinely looked like Pigsy had dug a couple of trenches in it and, even if I was pretending it hurt, those wounds were a good enough reason to see a doctor. They gave her some hope that she could get me to agree she wasn’t a slag. One person acknowledging that she wasn’t was hugely different to no one acknowledging it at all. But I had to go and disappoint her.

Can you publish the original Chinese text beside the translation? Or at least prepare links to the Chinese sites that do put the texts online? It would be more fun to read it like that.

But of course! For now, here's a link: http://www.tianyabook.com/wangxiaobo/hjsd/index.htm

Tianya's pretty good for books online, if you don't mind text ads, and reading onscreen. And possibly copyright violation? Also, there have been lots of fake Wang Xiaobo 全套 showing up, so if you want to buy, you should surreptitiously tug at the pages first.

We'll try to think of a better way to provide a bilingual reading experience here...
