Two Lives : Tales of Life, Love and Crime. Stories from China. Paperback / softback

Part of the Fiction Without Frontiers series


Seven stories, seven whispers into the ears of life: A Yi's unexpected twists of crime burst from the everyday, with glimpses of romance distorted by the weaknesses of human motive.

A Yi employs his forensic skills to offer a series of portraits of modern life, both uniquely Chinese, and universal in their themes.

His years as a police officer serve him well as he teases the truth from simple observation, now brought into the English language in a masterful translation by Alex Woodend.

The stories include Two Lives, Attic, Spring, Bach, Predator.

The first in the new Flame Tree Press series, Stories from China.
