The author, a veritable Beijinger gives an account of old Beijing with Beijing dialect. As a distinguishing feature of Beijing, alleys witness the historical changes, contemporary spirits and cultural atmosphere in Beijing. Those memories about Beijing such as courtyards, small alleys, candied fruits, soybean-flour cakes, and also local customs are recorded in the book. 《老北京的小胡同》是一部带有回忆录色彩的短片小说集。本书可以说是老北京说老北京——原汁原味的北京腔。胡同是北京的一大特色,它记下了历史的变迁、时代的风貌,并蕴含着浓郁的文化气息。书中,北京的四合院、北京的小胡同、北京的糖葫芦、北京的驴打滚、北京的风土人情,如烟往事,一览无遗。
