Book review: To Live by Yu Hua

Persimmon Magazine has a book review of the new translation of To Live (活着)by , the basis of the 1994 film:

To Live… reveals a side to Yu Hua’s work that is more immediately accessible than his early stories. While the high death toll among the book’s characters suggests a point of contact with the grim world of The Past and the Punishments, To Live proves to be as heartwarming as it is heartrending.
