Last Quarter of the Moon was awarded the 7th Mao Dun Literature Prize. It is the first novel in China that describes the current living condition and vicissitudes of Ewenki people, a northeast minority. In a self-narrative tone of an over 90-year-old woman chief of the Ewenki tribe, and also the last one, the author tells of this small and weak ethnic group's tenacious struggle and beautiful love. In subtle, simple language, this book vividly writes about the little-known flesh-and-blood Ewenki people. With an elegy to a weak ethnic group, Chi Zijian reflects the sadness in the course of human history, and her literary theme has an epic character and cosmopolitan meaning.
