Overview

Twenty-three-year-old Zhuang (or Z as she calls herself) arrives in London to spend a year learning English. Struggling to find her way in the city, and through the puzzles of tense, verb and adverb; she falls for an older Englishman and begins to realise that the landscape of love is an even trickier terrain.

Reviews

Praise for A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers <br> A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers is original, humorous, and wise. Within imperfect language one can find many perfect truths of the human condition. The misunderstandings are really the understandings of the differences of the heart between men and women. <br>--Amy Tan <br> Funny and charming . . . more than a love story; its psychology is politically acute, and things noted lightly in it linger in the mind. <br>-- The Guardian (London) <br> A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers cleverly courts our assumptions about the chasm between Chinese and Western cultures, only to upend them. It is an utterly captivating, and disorientating, journey both through language and through love. <br>-- The Independent (London) <br> It is impossible not to be charmed by Xiaolu Guo's matter-of-factness. As A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers grows in complexity with [the main character's] growing vocabulary--the narration acquires fluency and tenses almost imperceptibly--it is equally hard not to be impressed by Guo's vivacious talent. <br>-- Sunday Times (London) <br> Xiaolu Guo is a fabulous writer, fresh, witty, and intelligent. She handles language in an astonishing way. I don't think I haveenjoyed a book as much in the last twelve months. <br>--Joanne Harris
