The People! Definitely!

Last night, perhaps spurred by drift, i decided that I wanted to read contemporary Chinese literature. I discovered that IUS had half dozen or so recent titles and veered there after work.

One of the novels was Serve The People! by Yan Lianke which I proceeded to devour in a single sitting. I found it less than moving, think James Cain with the added contrast of Mao references every 3-5 sentences. I hope the others resonate to a greater extent.
