Reviews

"A fascinating tale of China just over the horizon" New Yorker "A thought-provoking novel about China's tomorrow, which reveals the truth about China today" -- Xinran, Author Of The Good Women Of China "The Fat Years remains valid because it is not simply a "what might happen" exercise in futurism. Its central conceit - that collective amnesia overtakes the entire country - is an all-encompassing metaphor for today's looming superpower... a triumph" Observer "A not-so-veiled satire of the Chinese government's tendency to make dates such as the Tiananmen massacre virtually disappear" Financial Times "Chan Koonchung's humorous tale reveals the distorted reality of China, where despite the supersonic development of its economy, political life is steadfastly unchanging" -- Ma Jian
