Product Details

Praise

“Elegant and sharp. . . . By turns inventive and playful and dark and disturbing, with much to say about modern China.” —NPR

“Surreal. . . . Yu’s most devastating critique of the new Chinese reality.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Entertaining. . . . Intriguing. . . . In narrowing his lens, his work carries new urgency.” —The Wall Street Journal
 
“A political allegory for life—and death—experienced in the chaos of a rapidly changing modern China.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Plaintive. . . . Moving.” —Grantland

“A ghostly walk through contemporary China evokes the human cost of some of the big issues that nation is facing.” —The Toronto Star

“Mesmerizing. . . .  Internationally award-winning novelist Hua crafts a discerning critique of contemporary Chinese culture through an evocative allegory revealing fates much worse than death.” —Booklist

“[A] poignant fable about family bonds made not of blood ties but unbreakable heartstrings. It will assuredly reward Yu’s readers, familiar and new.” —Library Journal (starred review)
