This is the first English translation of a notorious work by Chen Xiwo, one of China's most acclaimed and controversial writers. "I Love My Mum" caused an international sensation in 2007 when the author sued the Chinese government after they banned the Chinese version. I Love My Mum is a shocking tale of murder and incest narrated by a hardened crime squad detective who is used to the seamy side of life. Even he has never come across a murder case like this. And the same is guaranteed for the reader. In addition to a full translation of "I Love My Mum" the book includes a specially written authorial afterword, and an introduction to his life and work. The Modern Chinese Masters series aims to highlight Chinese authors and genres of fiction that are often ignored by Anglophone publishers. Each of the titles has been chosen for its ability to surprise and challenge preconceptions about Chinese writing. The series includes leading Chinese writers such as Li Er who have never previously been translated into English.
