America I hear is a youth driven culture. As a Chinese I'm not certain where that comes from but what I know is that in China, youth is diminished by a collective society. It lasts about three years, after which you're under pressure to get married and find a job and contribute to society.
In my new novel TWENTY FRAGMENTS OF A RAVENOUS YOUTH, the heroine Fenfang left a peasant life at the age of seventeen to chase her dreams in modern Beijing; she is in a terrible rush to make the most of her youth before it's too late. She's a youthful character but she has a sixty year old sorrow. Ideology is something very profound that you can't change overnight.
