Big Breasts and Wide Hips (Feng ru fei tun)
Because of its historical and ethnographic richness.
/Ozgur Ecevit Tasci, Turkey
It's a really interesting cultural look into communist China and how family planning worked. The author evoked a lot of emotion by juxtaposing political duty with family duty. I really appreciated that the narrator wasn't the main character as well, but a close family member writing a play on the main character.
/Danielle Bettis, United States
It is so authentic and very well written, very diverse.
