A poetic and unflinching fable about tyranny, guilt, and the erasure of history, by the banned Chinese writer hailed as `China's Solzhenitsyn'. In seven dream-like episodes, Ma Jian charts the psychological disintegration of a Chinese provincial leader who is haunted by nightmares of his violent past. From exile, Ma Jian shoots an arrow at President Xi Jinping's `China Dream' propaganda, creating a biting satire of totalitarianism that reveals what happens to a nation when it is blinded by materialism and governed by violence and lies. Blending tragic and absurd reality with myth and fantasy, this dystopian novel is a portrait not of an imagined future, but of China today. PRAISE FOR MA JIAN'S WORK `A landmark work of fiction' Daily Telegraph `Worthy of Swift or Orwell' Observer `A modern literary masterpiece' Sunday Express `Monumental . . . Riveting . . . A mighty gesture of remembrance against the encroaching forces of silence' Guardian `A born storyteller who has the artistry and intellect to evoke a staggeringly large and densely peopled world. His language is precise and sublimely visual; it is painfully funny' Madeleine Thien `In scene after scene of black satire, lyric tenderness and desolating tragedy . . . this fearless epic of history and memory establishes Ma Jian as the Solzhenitsyn of China's forgetful drive towards world domination' Independent `Ma Jian has accomplished something extremely difficult. That is, he has created a work of art that functions simultaneously as literature and call to action' New York Review of Books
