Brothers

 
Set in the period of Republican China from Mao Zedong to Deng Xiaoping, this novel is about the entirely different fates of Li Baldy and his stepbrother Song Gang. Yu Hua narrates their lives to reveal the psychologically difficult transition between communism and capitalism in the post-Maoist period. Like Yu Hua's other works, Brother is absurd, exaggerated, erotic, and violates the typical formula of a novel. It is full of unexpected plot twists, making it a thrilling read.
To Live

 
Internationally acclaimed bestseller and adopted screenplay, To Live uses a first-person narrative to tell the life story of Fu Gui - starting from his transformation from a spoiled, rich son to a poor farmer in the Maoist era. This novel highlights the challenges and sufferings of normal people during this era. The ironic fate of Fu Gui and his family shows that 'To Live' is never easy, especially during that period. There is no doubt this is a powerful and highly profound tear-jerker.
