Editorial reviews (5 reviews)

The lives of Jian and Mu, haunted by the turbulent history of Chinese politics (in particular, the Tiananmen Square massacre of 1989), read like a eulogy for a lost vision of China.

I Am China, her latest novel, is a multilayered exploration of politics and culture across three continents.

At its best this novel has bold, refreshing things to say about art and politics.
