Product Details


“In ‘The Dark Road,’ as in “Beijing Coma,” Mr. Ma is adept at jolting our senses, transporting us, with a few words about a pain, a taste or an odor, to those parts of China, and millions of people, who exist on the far fringes of the economic miracle. “—The New York Times

“[Ma Jian’s] characterization is superb. A devastating critique of China’s oppressive communist regime.”—Mail on Sunday

“Unforgettable.”—Sunday Telegraph

“Ma’s work is a vital corrective and he writes here with insistent, focused anger.”—Metro

“All of Ma’s skill and playfulness are on display as the novel builds to a climax.”—The Guardian

“A compellingly dark novel.”—Glasgow Sunday Herald
