By Geling Yan, read by Neil Dudgeon.
4/10. Dan's worst fears may be about to come true, but life as a banquet bug couldn't last forever, could it?
This first novel in English by a Chinese journalist is an extraordinary evocation of modern Chinese life, the apparently booming economy, the huge gap between rich and poor, and the omnipresence and corruption of the party.
Abridged and produced by Chris Wallis.
