SIGNED by Xiaolu Guo on the title page; this is her first book to be published outside China, a novel about the harshness of life on the Chinese coast.
The author was born in a fishing village in south China and studied film at the Beijing Film Academy. She published six books in China before moving to London in 2002. The English translation of "Village of Stone" was shortlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize and nominated for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award.
Xiaolu Guo was named one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists in 2013, a huge honor. Doris Lessing said, "...I think people are going to like this book very much." We agree.
