Review quote

`The Chinese novelist Yan Lianke is one of that country's greatest literary exports...[Dream of Ding Village] can be read on several levels, as the story of a rural village; as a description of several power struggles; as a ghost story; as a portrait of a regime gone mad.' * Otago Daily Times * `Based on the blood-selling scandal in Lianke's home province of Henan, this is a devastating tale...As China rushes headlong into the global economy, it's a stark warning.' * Adelaide Advertiser * `Dream of Ding Village paints a riveting and disturbing portrait of village life in the grip of epidemic...as an expose of mind-boggling greed, corruption and failure of government in the spread of AIDS through blood-selling, Ding Village is powerful and peerless.' * Sydney Morning Herald *
