Review of 'Intersection' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

"Intersection" is an evocative glimpse of an afternoon in Hong Kong, in the early 70s. This short story follows the thoughts and dreams of two strangers as they move throughout the city and have a chance meeting.

Text note: I do not have a copy of the book. "Intersection" is in the DVD booklet of In the Mood for Love (Criterion, 2002) and must have inspired the director Wong Kar-wai. It was translated by Nanci Li in the 1988 issue of Renditions (a "Chinese-English Translation Magazine"). Many out-of-print volumes of the magazine are available for free on the publisher's website.
