Reviews

Praise for Deadly Quiet City:
"A shocking, heart-rending report from the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic in China."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"A harrowing snapshot of life in the epicenter of the Covid-19 pandemic. . . . This is a masterful exposé."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Prominent Chinese writer Murong Xuecun portrays ordinary people living in hellish Wuhan, a place where Orwell's 1984 and Kafka's immense bureaucracies intersect. . . . These stories of suffering, propaganda, and abolition of personal freedoms will inform, sadden, and enrage readers."
--Booklist

"A harrowing compilation of testimonies from people living in Wuhan, China, during the beginning of COVID-19. . . . The testimonies are graphic and heartrending."
--Foreword Reviews
