Sometimes enraging, often humorous, but always powerful, this novel explores the economic and sexual exploitation of young men and women from China's impoverished countryside who seek survival in the shadow of China's economic "miracle." Deftly translated by Scott E. Myers, it is the first title in Seagull's new Pride List, which showcases important queer writing from around the world. Written in Mu Cao's trademark earthy, sometimes graphic, idiom, In the Face of Death We Are Equal will be a valuable addition to queer and Chinese literature in translation.
