    DescriptionA unique, intimate look at the Chinese experience over the past several decades, told through personal stories and astute analysis that sharply illuminate the country's meteoric economic rise and social transformation. Framed by ten words or phrases common in the Chinese vernacular, China in Ten Words reveals as never before the world's most populous yet most often misunderstood nation. This is a refreshingly candid vision of the 'Chinese miracle' and all its consequences, from the singularly invaluable perspective of a leading writer living in China today.

    Review quote
    'Yu Hua blends personal anecdote and national events to produce a moving and often disturbing look at the world's next superpower - witty and poetic - Hua offers a refreshing approach to examining the recent history of this fascinating country' We Love This Book 'An extraordinary book - Shot through with memoir, Yu Hua describes a revolution that jars the western reader on every page and drives home the differences that make China seem so alien' Scotsman 'Caustic and difficult to forget, China in Ten Words is a people's-eye view of a world in which the people have little place' TIME Magazine
