Product Details


“Mo Yan . . . brilliantly and fondly re-creates life with visceral writing that reeks of gunpowder, blood, and death.” —The New York Times Book Review

Praise for the work of Mo Yan:
“Through a mixture of fantasy and reality, historical and social perspectives, Mo Yan has created a world reminiscent in its complexity of those in the writings of William Faulkner and Gabriel García Márquez, at the same time finding a departure point in old Chinese literature and in oral tradition.” —The Nobel Prize Committee
“Mo Yan’s voice will find it’s way into the heart of the American reader, just as Kundera and García Márquez have.” —Amy Tan
