Synopsis:
In 1983, at the age of thirty, dissident artist Ma Jian finds himself divorced by his wife, separated from his daughter, betrayed by his girlfriend, facing arrest for “Spiritual Pollution,” and severely disillusioned with the confines of life in Beijing. So with little more than a change of clothes and two bars of soap, Ma takes off to immerse himself in the remotest parts of China. His journey would last three years and take him through smog-choked cities and mountain villages, from scenes of barbarity to havens of tranquility. Remarkably written and subtly moving, the result is an insight into the teeming contradictions of China that only a man who was both insider and outsider in his own country could have written.


Review:
"[Ma Jian] has come a long way and he describes what he calls his 'path' in vivid, unromantic and certainly unnostalgic language."

Jonathan Mirsky, Literary Review, June 2001

Review:
"As a painter and poet, however, ma Jian has an undeniable talent for bringing China to life, from the primeval jungle with a canopy resembling a deserted cathedral to the moths glowing under the dirty ceiling light of a cramped room filled with sweating bodies. [RED DUST provides] an unforgettable sense of what it is like to live in China since the death of Mao."

Frank Dikotter, Times Literary Supplement, 07/27/2001
