Summary: The Matchmaker, the Apprentice, and the Football Fan moves between anarchic campuses, infuriating communist factories, and the victims of China's economic miracle to showcase the absurdity, injustice, and socialist Gothic of everyday Chinese life. This new collection of short fiction establishes Zhu Wen as that rare creature among Chinese writers today: an author with both a fearless grasp of the chaotic violence of capitalist-Communist China and a sense of humor. In?The Football Fan," readers fall in with an intriguingly unreliable narrator who may or may not have killed his elde.
