Review:

"A treasure trove of polymorphous perversity and go-for-broke story telling...with Swiftian vigor and contempt."

Kirkus, 04/01/2000

Review:

"Like the gut-burning, groin-tightening, 120-proof liquor that courses through it, Mo Yan's THE REPUBLIC OF WINE is not for weak stomachs or readers with a low tolerance for caustic literature. Mr. Mo has distilled the grotesqueries of the human character--further twisted by the political vagaries of Chinese communism and distorted by the commercialism and moral ambiguity of post-Tiananmen China--and served it up as pure literary poison. No one is spared by this smart, black satire, not even the author himself....In a farcical take on how the party (and corporate China) subverts the stuff of legend to its own ends, it's deliberately hard to distinguish cultural mythology from political propaganda. Mr. Mo gives a middle finger to Beijing's censors and winks at a younger generation of literary bad boys. He also pays homage to a critically acclaimed but commercially failed school of avant-garde writers who take a clinical view of macabre tragedies."

Yu Wong, Wall Street Journal, 04/28/2000
