About the book
At the core of my work in a concern with our history, out culture, and the environment in which we live.
Behind the surge in economic development, our humanistic traditions have ended up in a lonely and desolate place, and our increasingly finding themselves slighted and undervalued. It is hard for anything to grow in places that have been steamrollered by utilitarianism. These 'Chinese style' scenes reveal the disappearance of the cultural genes that once formed the spiritual foundation of our survival.
To every ordinary person in this great country.
