Back cover copy

Caught somewhere between the clear-eyed rhapsodies of James Fenimore Cooper and Mao Tse Tung's own Address to the Yenan Forum on Art and Literature, Tuten's The Adventures of Mao on the Long March is a wildly inventive, triumphant novel of great wit and subversion. Out of a revolutionary montage of literary pastiche, comic strips, political rhetoric, film culture, and pop iconography, Tuten has fashioned a funny, caustic and tender romance.show more
