Soul Mountain

Just read Soul Mountain by Xingjian Gao.  What it impresses me most is the author's skill of sharing with a reader many Chinese people's feeling in 80s.  The story itself is not important.

In addition to his superb writing skills, what made the novel a milestone is, to my understanding, the author's awareness and recording of many Chinese people's real feeling from the bottom of their hearts in very early days.
