Two Lives. Tales of Life, Love and Crime

Author A Yi

Seven stories, seven whispers into the ears of life: A Yis unexpected twists of crime burst from the everyday, with glimpses of romance distorted by the weaknesses of human motive. A Yi employs his forensic skills to offer a series of portraits of modern life, both uniquely Chinese, and universal in their themes. His years as a police officer serve him well as he teases the truth from simple observation, now brought into the English language in a masterful translation by Alex Woodend. The stories are Two Lives, Attic, Spring, Bach, Dirtbag, Fat Duck, Predator. The first in the new Flame Tree Press series, Stories from China.
