An elderly peasant woman lives with her coffin in the kitchen. An American teacher is “adopted” by a village family. An eccentric grandfather teaches Chinese to his American student by jumping around the room and other perilous pantomimes.
China is a vast and populous nation which demands our understanding. But while newspaper headlines commonly focus on politics and economics, Saving Grandmother’s Face, written by Christian university teachers in China, recounts their experiences in the classroom and in the countryside, celebrating a child’s birth and mourning a child’s death, grading papers and discussing Chinese literature. Through these stories you will see a side of China often left out-the human side.
