A novel by Mo Yan, the author of Red Sorghum. The novel is interweaved with four long letters from a Chinese playwright to a Japanese writer, and a play. The playwright's aunt was an obstetrician in 1960's China when the country initiated the one-child policy to control population growth. Through her experience working under the State's iron fist, the novel conveys the emotionally wrenching story hinting the overpowering shame felt by the intellectuals. In Simplified Chinese. Distributed by Tsai Fong Books, Inc.
