Reviews

"A work of astounding emotional power." --Dai Sijie, author of Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress

"Yu Hua is the most profound voice coming out of China today. To Live reaches not only into the very essence of China and the Chinese people but into the blood and bones core of what it means to be a human being." --Lisa See, author of On Gold Mountain

"A Chinese Book of Job, To Live is a heart-wrenching saga, written with beauty, defiance, and hope. Yu Hua's books deserve a place on the highest shelf." --Wang Ping, author of Aching for Beauty and Foreign Devil

"A major contemporary novelist, Yu Hua writes with a cold eye but a warm heart. His novels are ingeniously structured and exude a mythical aura. Though unmistakably Chinese, they are universally resonant." --Ha Jin, author of Waiting

"A book of subtle power and poignant drama. You love Yu Hua's characters because they are flawed, vibrant, soulful, and real: you celebrate with them the small wonders of life, and feel their pain as they overcome tragedy. Ultimately, To Live is a redemptive story of the human spirit, one that is universal in its emotional depth." --Terrence Cheng, author of Sons of Heaven
