I find an interesting point that Prof. Perry Link wrote in his article http://www.nybooks.com/daily/2015/05/15/china-language-game-eileen-chang/ " The Chinese literary scholar Zhang Qianfen has noted a broad range of “intertextuality” between Sanggan River and Naked Earth on questions that range from how farmers wash their hands to what public “struggle sessions” look like. The main difference is that Ding Ling feels a continual need to invent “model behavior,” while Chang does not. "
