Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Contemporary Chinese Fiction by Su Tong and Yu Hua contains the table of contents and the acknowledgements. The book is structured in five chapters corresponding to the dual comparative frameworks of tragic and parodistic Bildungsroman. The first two chapters introduce the European Bildungsroman as a literary genre and review the history of modern Chinese chengzhang xiaoshuo respectively. These lay a comparative foundation for Chapters Three and Four, which deal solely with Su Tong's and Yu Hua's coming of- age narratives. The concluding chapter discusses the two authors' fictional works from two comparative perspectives.
