The first English-language anthology of its kind, Red Is Not the Only Color offers a window into the uncharted terrain of intimate relations between Chinese women. As urban China has undergone rapid transformation, same-sex relations have emerged as a significant touchstone for the exploration of the meaning of social change. The short fiction in this volume highlights tensions between tradition and modernization, family and state, art and commerce, love and sex. Compelling and accessible, these stories introduce an emerging generation of acclaimed, and at times controversial, women writers from the PRC, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
