This paper offers a close textual analysis of Eileen Chang's autobiographical novel Little Reunion. Examining how the novel constructs the protagonist's subjectivity and weaves the intersubjectivity between her and other characters, the article recognizes the relationship between affect and ethics, and it demonstrates how Chang respects the intervention of “other” to substantiate her own “self.”
