    Today’s most revered, feared, and controversial Chinese novelist offers a tour de force in which the real, the absurd, the comical, and the tragic are blended into a fascinating narrative. The hero—or antihero—of Mo Yan’s new novel is Ximen Nao, a landowner known for his benevolence to his peasants. His story is a deliriously unique journey and absolutely riveting tale that reveals the author’s love of a homeland beset by ills inevitable, political, and traditional.

    CHESTER says: "REINCARNATION"
    "Entertaining look at life in China"

    Story
    If you could sum up Life and Death are Wearing Me Out in three words, what would they be?

    funny, insightful, profound


    Have you listened to any of Feodor Chin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    It would be better read as it was difficult to follow characters because of unfamiliarity and similarity of Chinese names.
