• An elegant, dreamlike tale of a woman’s self-realisation in contemporary Beijing. Yu’s writing has an arresting, unadorned lyricism

    Daily Telegraph
  • A seductive, sharply observed tale of love, loss and hope that moves from high-rise Beijing to rural Tibet and the mysterious, magical ‘world of water’

    Fanny Blake, Daily Mail
  • A startlingly original imagination... Braised Pork is a sensitive portrait of alienated young womanhood as it is set free

  • Rich and strange Braised Pork is a debut that gets under your skin

    Anthony Cummins, Observer
  • Braised Pork is mesmerising, incisive and utterly disarming. An Yu writes beautifully about loneliness, the experience of isolation — from others, from one’s own past — and the possibility of human connection, however fragile.
