"Charting the transformation of a rural village into a 21st- century megalopolis, it is a boisterously inventive novel that conveys the everyday reality of modern China" -- David Mills * Sunday Times Books of the Year * "As much a parody of communist rule in China as a devastating critique of capitalist excess, power, greed and self-destruction, Yan's novel is nothing short of a masterpiece" -- Claire Kohda Hazelton * Observer * "Extraordinary... A provocatively illuminating and perceptive insight into contemporary China" -- David Mills * The Sunday Times * "A hyper-real tour de force, a blistering condemnation of political corruption and excess masquerading as absurdist saga" -- Catherine Taylor * Financial Times * "A rip-roaring Swiftian satire from a contemporary Chinese master... Yan Lianke, one of China's most forthright and versatile novelists, enlists extravagant comedy and far-fetched fable to propel his critique of a society where "power and money have colluded to steal people's souls"" * The Economist *
