A true story based on Wang's experiences in the countryside during the Cultural Revolution, Love in a Small Town is also the author's personal exploration into human nature and sexuality. Written at a time when sex was still a taboo subject in China, the book's real innovation is not its sexual explicitness, but its acknowledgement of sexual love as a powerful force in a human life.
