Shifu, You’ll Do Anything For A Laugh

Author:

In these stories, we see the breathtaking range of Mo Yan’s vision–which critics have compared to those of Tolstoy and Kafka. The stories range from the tragic to the comic, though Mo Yan’s humor is always tinged with a shade of black. They embody, too, the author’s deep and abiding love of his fellow man, equaled only by his intense disdain of bureaucracy and repression–despite which his fiction is never didactic. Satire, fantasy, the supernatural, mystery: all are present in this remarkable and intensely enjoyable volume.
