Reading texts in Chinese
On the ChinesePod affiliated 88groups, bokane is running a group called contemporary Chinese literature. We are reading a novella called "The golden age" by Wang Xiaobo. I am getting very helpful comments out of bokane..:) So far, we have discussed the first chapter out of eleven, but I am prepared to go through it all in details (I have read it to the end).
It would be fantastic if some more people joined us - I would certainly try to answer any questions on the text that I'm able to answer. The text is about sex, power and the cultural revolution. It is not THAT hard as Chinese texts go, but if you are like me, some electronic dictionary/text reader would be essential.
The group is at http://88groups.com/contemporary-chinese-literature/lessons?scheduled_lesson_id=735.
