I have been reading two novels:  and those like a  by-train-travelling on which I had starting point ...

  You could consider reading articles written by Jiayang Fan, who is a writer at The New Yorker, and Amy X. Wang, who has joined Rolling Stone from Quartz.   Amy X. Wang was born in China and moved to America with her family later on .  Jiayang Fan may have been born in China  just like  Amy X.

I suppose you are a fan of the authors you mentioned but I doubt you have the intellectual indepen ...

I didn't pick on you on this thread, did I?

What do you grab every opportunity to insult me? That post of mine was suspended by the Mod, and it is released now. If it is inappropriate, why does the Mod want to release it?
The purpose for recommending book is learning English. What's wrong for my recommendation? Two authors are Westerners you adore, admire, you love! To Kill a Mockingbird is aslo a political book involved in race discrimination against the black. Did you read that book?

When it comes to etiquette, I personally recommend Emily Post's works for you and tatata. Bing it, if you have no idea who she is!

Please don't trash Voice_cd's thread with your uncurbed unreasonable wrath. I wonder why you can't make friends with Chinese. Let's be friends!

Peace!
