Lovers in the Age of Indifference

by Xiaolu Guo

    Five emails from a woman to her lover, left without response.
    Address Unknown
    Several articles for the Beijing newspaper before and after its Chief Editor’s gentle touch.
    Beijing Morning Star
    Six emails to “undisclosed recipient”.
    Junk Mail
    A series of letters from a Berlin resident to five different addressees in Beijing, her hometown.
    Letters to a City of Illusion and Hope
    A love story told in SMS text messages.
    The Third Tree
These are not your typical short stories. But they work — at least for me — brilliantly. I hope they will work for you too.
