With so much deserving fiction awaiting translation, an anthology such as this one deserves gratitude.
— China Quarterly
This book is a touching co-operative product among the editor and women writers and translators. The stories are well chosen, with a cultural complexity and diversity that is quite remarkable. The stories move by their intellectual depth and emotional maturity, without hiding the historical complexity, cultural blind spots and social limitations and freedom that they come out of.
— China Perspectives
This lucidly translated collection opens a window for its readers to get a glimpse of a rarely observed emotional world inhabited by women with a same-sex affective orientation. . . . An important and timely project.
— China Review International
Red is Not the Only Color is an astonishing collection of stories that opens up a barely glimpsed world of a range of different kinds of intimacy between Chinese women. Sieber's lucid introduction places these gripping stories in a historical and cultural context that allows us to see how they challenge, in her words, 'both dominant Chinese and Western conceptions of gender, sexuality, and the political.' This anthology expands the boundaries of what we know about same-sex sexuality in a global context.
