The author Liu Xinwu narrates the past of 55 famous literary figures, including Ba Jin, Bing Xin, Wang Zengqi, Wang Xiaobo, Yu Feng, and Sun Weishi, in a warm and accessible manner, delivering his thoughts about literature, life and history. As he considers, history is a grand narrative that often unavoidably sacrifices many real and vivid details. However, in writing a personal memoir, the more we respect and revere history, the more we should truthfully supplement it with details. This is what ordinary readers hope for and historians do not refuse.
