Faces in the Crowd is a collection of short stories created by Mr. Feng Jicai in the 1990s. It is one of the world’s most famous short story collections. The stories are unified in style and keep readers on the edge of their seats with rich details and vivid characters. They offer a glimpse into the culture, customs, lifestyles, and folk arts and crafts in Tianjin in the late Qing Dynasty and early years of the Republic of China.
Feng Jicai was not only a famous writer, but also a famous painter. He once said, “These characters (in Faces in the Crowd) were born within my head. I know their tempers and temperaments, and what they look like when they make a face.” It took Feng 30 years to finish this series. Faces in the Crowd (Collectible Edition with Hand-Drawn Illustrations) contains a large number of manuscripts and more than 20 sketches by Feng.
