Recensioner i media
"Arch and playful... [Yan Lianke] deploys offbeat humour, anarchic set pieces and surreal imagery to shed new light on dark episodes from modern Chinese history... A brave, brilliant novel" -- David Evans * Financial Times * "It's a Chinese novel hailed across the planet as a masterpiece, and I'm normally the first to resist such an imposition before I've even opened the thing - but for once, the hype doesn't go far enough... a devastating, brilliant slice of living history" -- Kate Saunders * The Times * "No other writer in today's China has so consistently explored, dissected and mocked the past six and a half decades of Chinese communist rule... it is an extraordinary novel" -- Isobel Hilton * Observer * "One of the masters of modern Chinese literature" -- Jung Chang "Stark, powerful and compelling... A privilege" * Independent *
