9780099444886: The Crazed

Professor Yang, a respected teacher of literature, has had a stroke and it falls to Jian Wan - who is also engaged to Yang's daughter - to care for him. It initially seems a simple duty until the professor begins to rave, pleading with invisible tormentors and denouncing his family...

Are these just manifestations of illness, or is Yang spewing up the truth? In a China convulsed by the Tiananmen uprising, those who listen to the truth are as much at risk as those who speak it. Lyrical and heart-breaking, The Crazed is an incisive portrait of modern Chinese society.

Product Description:

The Crazed

Review:

"Expertly done" ( Daily Mail)

"A compelling book... [Jin] has a fine sense of the human scale of history and an eye for the absurd" ( Guardian)

"[Jin's] new novel...again demonstrates his literary gifts" ( The Times)

"A fascinating tale told with skill and eloquence; a truly wonderful read" ( Publishing News)

" The Crazed...is a complicated web of human attachments. Like the best realist writers, Ha Jin sneaks emotional power into the plainest declarative sentences" ( New Yorker)
