Reviews

  • The defining work of his career; not just an elegantly crafted piece of literature but a devastating critique of China’s runaway development

    Guardian
  • His lyricism of despair, full of frenzied life, even when there is foam on lips, gives this novel of Yan Lianke its atrocious grace

    Le Monde
  • A sorrowful but captivating novel about the price of progress in modern China. The book, which was censored in that country, builds to an act of violence that resonates with the impact of Greek tragedy or Shakespearean drama

    Kirkus Reviews
  • One of China's greatest living authors and fiercest satirists

    Guardian
  • Yan Lianke denounces an alarming situation...his novel is a true revelation
