This article explores the dual structure of everyday life exhibited in the novel Cellphone by Liu Zhenyun, a neo-realism novelist in China. In comparison to the previous traditional realism literature, the trend of neo-realism attempts to draw in more of the ordinary peoples`everyday life into the realm of literature. In accordance to this tendency, Liu Zhenyun especially focuses on the `language`as one of the basic aspects that construct everyday life in his most recently published novel, Cellphone. Liu Zhenyun depicts main characters of the Cellphone in a form of a text expressed by a `language`,which again in turn are consumed as a `language`. At the same time, the lives of the people in the novel are expressed in a dual structure formation which conveys how there is a life of oppression and misery beneath a life of boredom and repetition. Although the Cellphone in itself takes a bystander stance towards reality and tries to flee from it, the novel also provides the readers with the implication of questioning the true nature of the life beyond our daily life by revealing the dual structure of everyday life.
