The lovers you'll encounter in Lovers in the Age of Indifference may come from across the world, but they all share a tough, romantic spirit. Written in a warm, witty prose, writer and filmmaker Xiaolu Guo's engagingly maverick collection of stories zooms in on moments in the lives of lost souls and lovers in a tender and surreal fashion. Enchantingly moving between West and East, Guo's personal, provocative and charming fables capture the sense of alienation thrown up by life in the modern world. Follow her characters in their search for human contact - and love - in rapidly-changing landscapes all around the globe
