Serve the People!

by: Yan Lianke

Publisher: Grove Atlantic (2005)


This book is banned in China! Any time a book is banned it peaks my interest right off the bat. But not only is it banned, it's great! It's very funny, not-so-subtly poking fun at the ridiculous ideals of Mao's Cultural Revolution. Good stuff.
