China Dream, Hardback Book

Description

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.
