As a representative writer of the new immigrants who went to the USA from China in 1980s,Zha Jianying is different from the writers of either the previous generations or the same generation.Wavering between the Western and Chinese cultures and suffering the marginalization,she devoted a great deal of efforts to describing what cultural and sex conflicts the North American Chinese have faced up to.Her masterpiece To America! To America! revealed an insight into the physical existence and physiological status of the marginalized people,reflected the paradoxical existence dilemma where their character faded due to cultural conflicts,and showed the cultural self-identification crisis and the alienation to which all new immigrants had to face,as well as their pursuit of libertine-like freedom.
