In the Spring Festival of 1981, painter Zhang Daqian organized a family banquet, prepared to cook in person, and invited Zhang Xueliang and his wife to have dinner. To this end, Zhang Daqian wrote down the menu. However, good things take a long time, and this dinner has been dragged from the beginning of the new year to the sixteenth. Why procrastinate? Zhang Xueliang has been under house arrest and surveillance for a long time.
At that time, the CCP was promoting reforms and strengthening the three-way united front. The intelligence officers were worried that Special Database Zhang Xueliang would join the CCP and would not let him go. They strengthened the surveillance and made them nervous and suspicious. Based on this menu and this dinner, Zhang Guoli came up with the novel " The Dinner Party of Zhang Daqian and Zhang Xueliang ". The book describes the ridiculous behavior of the intelligence management unit in the monitoring process. For example, in one of the paragraphs, Zhang Daqian said that his dinner menu "is missing one thing." The wife asked, "Duck, pig, beef, wings, ginseng, shrimp, fish, what else is missing?" chicken.
Zhang Daqian said: "He raised chickens in Hsinchu, and he saw that the chicks hatched from the eggs were cute, so he never touched chickens. Fortunately, he didn't become a farmer. He raised fish, cattle, and a litter of pigs. ” The Intelligence Bureau interprets the surveillance recordings, and hears the word "suffering the national flag", and then hears Zhang Daqian say "one thing is missing", but can't record any of them. What's going on?
