The Most Beautiful Face in the World contains two stories from noted Chinese author Xue Shu. The title story is an intricate look at the life of Ah Xing, a man who sees the world with his hands. Blind since birth, Ah Xing has a fully independent and comfortable life, until two women unexpectedly enter his world.

Keening, the second story in the collection, explores the ancient art of ritual wailing at funerals. Xiao Fengxiang, a former actress who reinvents herself as the most sought-after of keeners, is a bright light in a most unusual, yet revered, occupation.

Xue Shu's detailed observations provide a window onto city life in China. These two stories will draw you into today's world with its challenges and contradictions, hardships and triumphs.

Xue Shu is a professional writer and a member of the China Writers' Association (CWA). Her works have appeared in renowned literary magazines in China, including Shou Huo (Harvest) and Shi Yue (October). She was awarded the New Writer Prize at the first Erdos China Writer Awards, and several of her novels have appeared on annual lists of noteworthy works of contemporary literature in China.
