Though he lived mostly in rural South Taiwan, Zhong Lihe (1915–1960) spent several years in Manchuria and Peking, moving among an eclectic mix of ethnicities, classes, and cultures. His fictional portraits unfold on Japanese battlefields and in Peking slums, as well as in the remote, impoverished hill-country villages and farms of Zhong Lihe’s native Hakka districts. His scenic descriptions are deft and atmospheric, and his psychological explorations are acute. The first anthology to present his work in English, this volume features two novellas, ten short stories, and four short prose works.

A young man stumbles into danger in his Brooklyn neighborhood in this “inspired” crime novel that is “part coming-of-age story, part thriller” (Entertainment Weekly). In working-class Bay Ridge, Michael drives for a car service and gives lifts to his father, a former sanitation worker and current small-time bookie. He has a friend with a heroin habit, and a longtime girlfriend who expects they’ll get married one of these days. Michael spends most of his time on the familiar streets where he grew up, but now he’s crossing the bridge into Manhattan for some college classes—where he meets a seductive female classmate who seems to come from a whole different world. He is pulled in two directions, but it seems like he has time to figure it all out—until he finds himself in the periphery of a murder that will change his destiny forever . . . “Sweet, sardonic and by turns hilarious and tragic . . . Powerfully describes the bonds between Michael and his father . . . The novel’s greatest achievement is its tender depiction of Michael as a would-be tough guy, trying to follow his father’s dictum of ‘Give them nothing,’ while undergoing a painful education in the real world.” —Publishers Weekly “Reads like an inspired cross between Richard Price’s Bloodbrothers and Ross Macdonald’s The Chill.” —Entertainment Weekly

Sons of two old countries, Ireland and Italy, two old and feared brotherhoods, the IRA and the Mafia. They come into violent conflict over the exploitation of Irish shopkeepers by violent extortionists. The Mafia Don has never experienced the frustration and exasperation the Irish leader, constantly quoting Irish philosophy and aphorisms, forces upon him. The FBI, the Boston police and the other crime families are drawn into the battle with all of the predictable violence, assassination, kidnapping and mayhem, seasoned by humor, drama, and two very unlikely romances. The denouement must be read to be believed.
