Gish Jen delivers a concise, engaging look at the profoundly different characteristics that define “good stories” across the cultural divide of East and West. Particularly interesting is her prodding of the accepted wisdom that good writing is always character-driven—a broadly Western and most especially American conceit about the definition of good writing that says more about our own self-conception than it does about the fundamentals of writing itself.
