Pymble. Fourth Estate. 2004. Stock ID #164251

xviii + 398 pp, glossary, very light browning on edges, otherwise very good in paperback. "Consider Maqiao: a little village, impossible to find, almost dropped off the map, with a few dozen households... set against a stretch of mountain. Sent here for 're-education' during China's Cultural Revolution, a young man encounters an upside-down world that time has forgotten. The customs are peculiar and the dialect strange; nothing is quite what it seems..." -- lower cover.
Translated by Julia Lovell and first published in English in the USA. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 164251).
