When the Sunset Disappears is a controversial work set in the 1980s. In his boyhood, Li Huaiping was friends with Nan Shan, and in one beautiful spring season, love grew between them. However, in the Cultural Revolution, born into a Kuomintang family, Nan Shan was denounced, and the person in charge of the denunciation was Li Huaiping. The strong conflict of their inner feelings and social roles caused them to be strangers and drift apart. Twenty years later as a warship officer, Li Huaiping encounters Nan Shan at the top of Mount Tai. She has grown from an innocent girl to a mature translator. Li Huaiping expresses his years of inner love and regret to Nan Shan, but she tells him it's too late. Although this is a sad love story, it is exciting literature that shows modern China's ideological emancipation. The novel explores the relationship between civilization and barbarism, science and religion, love and hate, emotion and reason, and the true, the good, and the beautiful.
