Kim-chew Ng(黃錦樹）was born in Malaya. Having heard so much about it,I want to say Malaya is indeed an extremely absurd and parochial country. Such a petit and backward country as it is, it puts on an air towards Chinese Malayans and dismissed diplomas granted by China and Taiwan. What a ridiculous nation!Consequently,a wealth of Chinese young talent say goodbye to Malaya and obtain their footholds in Taiwan's academia, Kim-chw Ng being one of them. Ng's talent in modern Chinese literary criticism absorbed David Der-Wei Wang's attention, and soon won his recognition and support. "Bad Boy Kim-chew Ng" is the title of the review by David Wang. Comparing with David Wang's mild style,Ng is always so straightfoward and even acerbic in his literary criticism, which annoys and even offends some coterie. This book Texuality,Soul,and Body:on Chinese Modernity consists of twelve articles, every one of which, for me, is time-consuming and challenging my present knowldge,leaving me questions.It should be recommended to China's academia.
