Publisher's Summary

From the award-winning poet, dissident, and “one of the most original and remarkable Chinese writers of our time” (Philip Gourevitch) comes a raw, evocative, and unforgettable look at the Tiananmen Square massacre through the eyes of those who were there. 

For more than seven years, Liao Yiwu - a master of contemporary Chinese literature, imprisoned and persecuted as a counterrevolutionary until he fled the country in 2011 - secretly interviewed survivors of the devastating 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre. Tortured, imprisoned, and forced into silence and the margins of Chinese society for 30 years, their harrowing stories are now finally revealed in this gripping and masterful work of investigative journalism. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Revealing and a little depressing.

Bullets and Opium is full of amazing stories, they are written really well and all work together to tell a story of how China has changed in the last 30 years. Great book.
