The Li sisters don't have much education, but one thing has been drummed into them: their mother is a failure because she hasn't managed to produce a son, and they themselves only merit a number as a name. Yet when circumstances lead the sisters to seek work in distant Nanjing, the shocking new urban environment opens their eyes.

Review:

"Respect for honour and tradition, wicked humour and a vital social message combine in an appealing yet sometimes shocking read" (Guardian)

"The story remains engrossing, and when Xinran turns her attention to the frenetic streets and history of Nanjing, her own beloved hometown, the prose truly comes to life" (Daily Mail)

"This mood of hope, as both inspiring and ultimately attainable, is what makes Miss Chopsticks such an uplifting read" (Financial Times)

"Xinran's tale will likely play on the mind for years to come" (Big Issue)

"Xinran's skill lies in investigating the universal human thoughts and emotions behind the girls' naivety" (Observer)

Book Description:

Tapping into people's fascination with what is going on in modern China, Xinran (author of the bestselling The Good Women of China) has written a delightfully warm and fascinating tale of three peasant girls trying to get to grips with life in the big city.
