Howard Goldblatt, the foremost translator of contemporary Chinese literature in the West, will present his edition of Jiang Rong's award-winning, best-selling novel Wolf Totem ($26.95 Penguin). An epic Chinese tale in the vein of The Last Emperor, Wolf Totem depicts the dying culture of the Mongols, and the parallel extinction of the animal they believe to be sacred: the fierce and otherworldly Mongolian wolf. Part period epic, part fable for modern days, Wolf Totem is a stinging social commentary on the dangers of China's over-accelerated economic growth as well as a fascinating immersion into the heart of Chinese culture. Goldblatt is making U.S. appearances on behalf of the author. Bookplates signed by Jiang Rong will be available at the event.Request a signed copy: email@example.com (booksense)
