Hsun, L. (n.d.). A Happy Family. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Having thought so far he suddenly jumped out of bed. It occurred to him that he must make some money by writing to support his family, and he had already decided to send his manuscripts to the Happy Monthly publishers, because the remuneration appeared to be comparatively generous. But in that case the choice of subjects would be limited, otherwise the work would probably not be accepted. All right let it be limited. What were the chief problems occupying the minds of the younger generation? ... Undoubtedly there must be not a few, perhaps a great many, concerning love, marriage, the family ... Yes, there were certainly many people perplexed by such questions, even now discussing them. In that case, write about the family! But how to write? ... Otherwise it would probably not be accepted. Why predict anything unlucky? Still ... Jumping out of bed, in four or five steps he reached the desk, sat down, took out a piece of paper with green lines, and promptly yet with resignation wrote the title: A Happy Family.
