In the heat of a traffic jam, a man and woman get stuck in a taxi on their way to visit the woman’s parents. She’s a graduate with few prospects; he’s the man her parents desperately want her to
marry. Will they make the train? Nicky Harman and Michelle Deeter compare alternative translations of this story by one of China’s brightest women writers, Aman Song. With host Deborah Smith from Tilted Axis Press
