Abstract

Reviews Another puzzling aspect is Kinkley's omission of equally interesting writers such as Zhou Meishen and Zhang Chenggong. Indeed, Zhang Chenggong's anticorruption police fiction, which has exerted a huge influence on TV crime drama, adopts such a unique perspective that its discourse not only competes with the official one but also with the unofficial discourses presented in Kinkley's book. Inclusion of Zhang's work would help to bolster Kinkley's argument that in the loosely defined genre of anticorruption fiction, we see a highly "discursive heterogeneity,"1 which defines all popular genres in contemporary China. Shuyu Kong Shuyu Kong is a lecturer of Chinese studies at University of Sydney specializing in Chinese literature and, more recently, screen culture. Notes 1.
