China Dream

`One of China`s greatest living novelists` Guardian Blending fact with fiction, China Dream is an unflinching satire of totalitarianism. After decades of loyal service, Ma Daode, a corrupt and lecherous party official, has been appointed director of the China Dream Bureau, charged with promoting President Xi Jinping`s China Dream of national rejuvenation. But just as he is about to present his plan for a microchip that will be implanted into the brain of every citizen to replace all painful recollections with a collective dream of national supremacy, his sanity begins to unravel. Plagued by flashbacks of the Cultural Revolution, his nightmare visions from the past threaten to destroy his dream of a glorious future. This darkly comic fable is a dystopian vision of repression and state-enforced amnesia set not in the future, but in China today. `Excoriating...Not for nothing has Ma been called both the Orwell and Solzhenitsyn of Chinese literature` A Financial Times Book of the Year `Red Guards meet Kurt Vonnegot, sort of: powerful!` Margaret Atwood, via Twitter
