China in Ten Words
By

Rating
A powerful, intimate look at the Chinese experience from the years of the Cultural Revolution to the present day, told through personal stories from one of China's most acclaimed authors. Framed by ten words and phrases common in the Chinese vernacular, China in Ten Words reveals as never before the world's most populous yet often misunderstood nation. Characterized by Yu Hua's trademark wit, insight, and courage, he presents a refreshingly candid vision of the `Chinese miracle' and all its consequences, from the singularly invaluable perspective of a leading writer living in China.

Reviews

`A brilliant memoir of China ... Throughout this beautifully narrated, carefully analytical and at times personally courageous book, Yu shows the dark side of China's economic "miracle" * Guardian * Caustic and difficult to forget, China in Ten Words is a people's eye view of a world in which the people have little place * Time * Gripping... it astounds me that Yu Hua has not already joined Nobel Peace Prize-winner Liu Xiaobo and a growing number of other outspoken intellectuals behind bars -- Jonathan Mirsky * Literary Review *
