Lantern is another surprise Jia Pingao brings to the literary world and readers. The work has not only maintained the authors art features, but also reached a new literary height. The protagonist of the novel is a female township cadre named "" lantern"", due to her primitive name ""Firefly"", which is like patrolling with a lantern in the darkness of night. The name also shows her fate: though she is desperately burning and illuminating, she is destined feeble. All are but dust to dust at the end.
