Summary

Yan Lianke’s reputation continues to grow as one of the most renowned novelists writing from inside China today. In a recent New York Times “By the Book” column, Amos Oz called Yan Lianke “a great Chinese writer.” And in Jiayang Fan’s NYTBR of The Explosion Chronicles, she wrote: “ I can think of few better novelists than Yan, with his superlative gifts for storytelling and penetrating eye for truth.”







Yan was twice short-listed for the Man Booker International Prize (most recently for The Four Books), as well as the Prix Femina Etranger, the Financial Times Oppenheimer Emerging Voices Award, the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize, and long-listed for the Man Asian Literary Award. He recently won the Franz Kafka Prize for his body of work (the first Chinese writer to receive the award) and the prestigious Dream of the Red Chamber Award in China.







Yan’s books have landed on Best of the Year lists and have been chosen as New York Times Editors’ Choice picks.







These two short novellas are more approachable for new readers than Yan’s longer political and cultural satires







Written just before his breakthrough novel Serve the People, they demonstrate Yan’s early genius. They are fable-like tales focusing on everyday villagers struggling to overcome personal hardship.







Marrow is about a single mother grappling to overcome the stigma of mental illness in her children. Colm Toibin has called it “a masterpiece” and the Asian Review of Books said the story is “timeless” and “marvelous.”







The Days, The Months, The Years is a bestselling classic in China—every schoolchild reads this fable and it has sold over a million copies. It tells the story of an old man keeping his sense of purpose alive by tending to his abandoned village. Yan won the prestigious Lu Xun Literary Prize (China’s equivalent of our National Book Award) for this novella.

    "A ripping good story." —Betsy Ashton, author of the Mad Max Mysteries
      
    Dr. Jason Longfellow is a bored FDA drug reviewer in the midst of a serious midlife crisis. He has a shiny new convertible he can’t fit into, an exasperated wife who thinks he’s lost his mind, three daughters who always side with mom, and with a new PI license he fancies himself a modern-day Jessica Fletcher. What could go wrong? Carpooling to work one morning, Jason gets his first case when his attractive brunette passenger erupts into relentless spontaneous orgasms. Intent on clearing himself of any wrongdoing in the eyes of Mrs. Longfellow, Jason stumbles onto a chain of evidence that leads to CureStuff Pharmaceuticals, a clinical drug trial, and a number of improbably good-looking female suspects. Will Jason resist temptations of the flesh, solve the case and prove once and for all that he is at least as smart as his five-year-old? Or will his clever plans get him murdered . . . by his wife?

    DSI Barton and his team investigate a particularly nasty crime when the body of a teenage girl is found in the boot of a car. She's had her legs cut off. She's been subjected to one of the most barbaric practices done to young girls. But who is she? How did she end up like that?
    
     
    Meanwhile, one of Barton's oldest adversaries is back on the scene and making his presence felt. But why has he risked everything by coming back? He's a spent force. His former power over the gangland community of Manchester has gone. Someone else is sitting in his seat now. 
    
     
    When the sister of the murdered girl contacts Barton to say that she's in the same position as her dead sister, she's taking a massive risk with her own life. But she sets Baton and his team on a trail that exposes a serial killer to them. Tracking him down is one thing but have they got the right man? And what is his connection with the gangland warfare that plays out and places Barton's son Toby in mortal danger when he's abducted?
    
     
    This one really does become as personal as it could possibly get.
