The following manuscript contains a novella and a short story collection, accompanied by a critical preface. The novella focuses on three young women who go to China to be foreign language teachers at a Chinese University and, due to a mix up, end up living in the same apartment over the course of one semester. The three heroines come from troubled background and engage in various self-distracting behaviors until they begin to heal and forge their own path in life.
The short stories in the collection deal with various subjects and themes, such as consumerism, environmental destruction, and commodification of women and nature.
