An unparalleled, intimate look at the Chinese experience by an award-winning author

About the Author

Yu Hua is the author of four novels, six collections of stories, and three collections of essays. His work has been translated into more than twenty languages. In 2002, he became the first Chinese writer to win the James Joyce Award. To Live and Chronicle of a Blood Merchant were named two of the past decade's ten most influential books in China by Wen Hui Bao, the largest newspaper in Shanghai. Yu Hua lives in Beijing.


'A brilliant memoir of China ... Throughout this beautifully narrated, carefully analytical and at times personally courageous book, Yu shows the dark side of China's economic "miracle."

* Guardian *

'Caustic and difficult to forget, China in Ten Words is a people's eye view of a world in which the people have little place.'

* The Times *

'Gripping... it astounds me that Yu Hua has not already joined Nobel Peace Prize-winner Liu Xiaobo and a growing number of other outspoken intellectuals behind bars'

-- Jonathan Mirsky * Literary Review *
