September's Fable tells the story of the rise and fall of a Chinese coastal village through its difficult formation, hard existence and inevitable disintegration. Spanning approximately sixty years, the novel is a rich and intriguing tapestry of life and death in rural China. Somewhat in the tradition of William Faulkner and Gabriel García Márquez, September's Fable weaves history, politics, and folklore close together to bring an enchanting way of storytelling that dexterously touches on such universal themes as love and hate, war and revolution, city and country, the noble and the ugly, and, more importantly, the inevitability of the old superseded by the new and young.

One of contemporary China's most prolific and widely respected novelists, Zhang Wei has remained a secret in the West. This fine translation of one of his most complex novels will change that, and is a welcome addition to the growing corpus of Chinese fiction in English. --Howard Goldblatt, Professor of Chinese, University of Notre Dame, and the foremost translator of contemporary Chinese literature in the West
