China Dream description

Ma Jian has been described as China’s Solzhenitsyn and its greatest living writer. He lives in exile in London, his books and return to his homeland both banned by the Chinese government.
His latest novel, China Dream, co-opts the rhetoric from Xi Jinping’s Chinese Dream speech of 2013 as it charts the disintegration of a corrupt public official, tormented by his past cruelty, and complicity with the totalitarian regime. It is a short, sharp satire, brutally and blackly comic.
