9780857420763: POW!

A benign old monk listens to a prospective novice's tale of depravity, violence, and carnivorous excess while a nice little family drama - in which nearly everyone dies - unfurls. But in this tale of sharp hatchets, bad water, and a rusty WWII mortar, we can't help but laugh. Reminiscent of the novels of dark masters of European absurdism like Gunter Grass, Witold Gombrowicz, or Jakov Lind, Mo Yan's 'Pow!' is a comic masterpiece. In this bizarre romp through the Chinese countryside, the author treats us to a cornucopia of cooked animal flesh - ostrich, camel, donkey, and dog, as well as the more common varieties. As his dual narratives merge and feather into one another, each informing and illuminating the other, Yan probes the character and lifestyle of modern China. Displaying his many talents as fabulist, storyteller, scatologist, master of allusion and cliche, and more, 'Pow!' carries the reader along quickly, hungrily, and giddily, up until its surprising denouement. Yan has been called one of the great novelists of modern Chinese literature, and the 'New York Times Book Review' has hailed his work as harsh and gritty, raunchy and funny. He writes big, sometimes mystifying, sometimes infuriating, but always entertaining novels - and 'Pow!' is no exception.

Críticas:

"If China has a Kafka, it may be Mo Yan. Like Kafka, Yan has the ability to examine his society through a variety of lenses, creating fanciful, Metamorphosis-like transformations or evoking the numbing bureaucracy and casual cruelty of modern governments."-Publishers Weekly "Life and Death Are Wearing Me Out remains a wildly visionary and creative novel, constantly mocking and rearranging itself and jolting the reader with its own internal commentary." -New York Times Book Review"

Biografía del autor:

Mo Yan has published dozens of short stories and novels in Chinese. His other English-language works include The Garlic Ballads.
