About the Author:

Xiaolu Guo was born in south China. She studied film at the Beijing Film Academy and published six books in China before she moved to London in 2002. Her books include Village of Stone which was shortlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize, A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers which was shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction, 20 Fragments of a Ravenous Youth which was longlisted for the Man Asian Literary Prize, and I Am China which was longlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction. In 2013 she was named as one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists. Xiaolu has also directed several award-winning films including She, A Chinese and a documentary about London, Late at Night. She lives in London and Berlin.

Review:

"Guo's humour is bracingly ironic and tinderbox dry" * The Times * "A fast moving, barbed polemic...a sharp little book in which the legacy of the Cultural Revolution shimmers and festers... A writer to read, a writer who makes every word count" * Irish Times * "A breath of the freshest air imaginable. She cuts through the smog of hype and platitude" -- Boyd Tonkin * Independent * "Sprightly... the comedy is neatly poised... a damning portrait of totalitarian China" * Scotland on Sunday * "The novel resonates in revelations of loss and pain" * Guardian *
