The Crazed

Author:

Professor Yang, a respected teacher of literature, has had a stroke and it falls to Jian Wan – who is also engaged to Yang’s daughter – to care for him. It initially seems a simple duty until the professor begins to rave, pleading with invisible tormentors and denouncing his family…

Are these just manifestations of illness, or is Yang spewing up the truth? In a China convulsed by the Tiananmen uprising, those who listen to the truth are as much at risk as those who speak it. Lyrical and heart-breaking, The Crazed is an incisive portrait of modern Chinese society.
