Talk and Book SigningAdmission FreeA million-copy bestseller upon its publication in China, Yu Hua’s Brothers encapsulates the story of modern China, offering a satirical and compassionate portrait of life after Mao. The story of two stepbrothers, Baldy Li (talkative, outgoing and sex-obsessed) and Song Gang (quiet and bookish), Brothers depicts the acceleration of slow-paced village life into high-tech modernity as everyone scrambles to get rich and famous in the decades following the Cultural Revolution. The Boston Globe calls Brothers a book full of “mind-bending moments…Both ribald and elegiac…a satire, but also a rebuke of how China, in its breathless pursuit of success, has compromised its soul.” Yu Hua is the author of thirteen books including To Live and Chronicle of a Blood Merchant, named two of the last decade’s ten most influential books in China. In 2002 he became the first Chinese writer to win the prestigious James Joyce Foundation Award. (booksense)
