Xue Yiwei — 2022
Three strangers of different origin are blown onto a snowy stage by the gust of globalization.What is the meaning of life? This is the core theme of Xue Yiwei's literary works. And what is the meaning of life in the time of globalization is the theme of this novel. You might feel the answer is not evident at the end of reading. But turning pages, you will be assured that your vision about life is being broadened by the fate of three main characters and their extraordinary encounter in a seemingly ordinary deep winter in Montreal. And as a result, you will be assured that history still matters, humanity still matters, mutual understanding still matters, trust still matters, hope still matters ... even if uncertainty has been casting so long a shadow into this world around us. And most of all, the meaning of life still matters, as does the literature that seeks it out.
