THE EXPLOSION CHRONICLES
by Yan Lianke
translated by Carlos Rojas
published by Vintage
With the Yi River on one side and the Balou Mountains on the other, the village of Explosion was founded a thousand years ago by refugees fleeing a volcanic eruption. But in the post-Mao era, the name takes on a new significance as the rural community grows explosively from a small village to a town to a city to a vast megalopolis.
Behind this rapid expansion are three rival clans linked together by a web of ambition, madness and greed. Together they transform their hometown into a Babylon of modern times--an unrivalled urban superpower built on lies, sex and thievery.
