Camel Xiangzi not only marks the peak of Lao She's career as a professional writer, but it also registers a new approach to the representation of China in its absurdist situation
Camel Xiangzi not only marks the peak of Lao She's career as a professional writer, but it also registers a new approach to the representation of China in its absurdist situation. The novel shows Lao She at his best the work of a mature writer, who excels in his mastery of narrative techniques, as well as his prophetic vision of the future of China. For this reason, it can be read as an "epic" of modern China. Renowned for his absurdist re-visioning of the world and experimentation with the techniques of humour in his satirical writings.

THIS story is about Xiangzi, not about Camel, because "Camel" was only his nickname.
Lao She’s classic novel, better known as Rickshaw Boy, is set in 1920s China. The republic had been declared a decade ago and now the country is close to civil war. It is every man for himself and against this backdrop unfolds the story of a rickshaw-puller named Xiangzi who arrives in Beijing hoping to make his fortune but instead, meets a series of misfortunes.
