This book is an English-Chinese version of Wang Zengqi's selected works, including The Love Story of a Young Monk and Special Gift. The Love Story of a Young Monk narrates the lively and unconscious affection between the young monk Minghai and the girl yingzi, and portrays the idyllic scenery of Lixiahe area in north Jiangsu Province in the 1930s in a poetic way. The story is filled with an inherent joy, singing the praises of the simplicity and beauty of human nature. Special Gift is a terse sketch of the local customs and practices of a small town in north Jiangsu Province, vividly depicting the life of common people such as Wang Er, who is thrifty and humble. Seemingly full of tender feeling and harmony, the works embody the writer's introspection and examination of the living state of his characters.
