This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
Quite an enchanting book. The story of the reeducation of a young man, both in terms of his work in the countryside away from scholarship and in terms of love. The love story includes a ghost-bride, a polygamist wife, and a small "tribe" of drift-people.

Well translated with lyrical wordplay in English that captures the feeling and artistry from Su Wei's original text. Highly fun to read, and a different take on reeducation in the country. ( )

What a surprising and delightful book. It's not what I was expecting. It is mystical and magical. The main character who is supposed to be getting reeducated in China's countyside instead ends up tending cows in the hills, marrying a ghost-wife and being schooled by "drift people" who teach him more than he could have hoped for.

Unfortunately unreadable on my kobo. Could not get a good conversion to epub and the pdf received has fonts way too small.
