  OUR STORY Pingru and Meitang
   
 

From his early childhood to his marriage, his involvement in the army,  his twenty years

 

of re-education which separated him from his wife who had to raise their children alone

 

to Meitang illness, and her death, he tells their story, which is both tender and serious,

 

with a sense of detail and anecdote, showing the importance of everyday life and

 

traditions.

   
 

His text is embellished with simple drawings in ink and watercolour, whose freshness

 

delights us.
