Mr. Muo's travelling couch by Sijie Dai( Recording )

After years of studying Freud in Paris, Mr. Muo returns home to introduce the blessings of psychoanalysis to twenty-first-century China. But it is his hidden purpose--to liberate his university sweetheart, now a political prisoner--that leads him to the sadistic local magistrate, Judge Di. The price of the Communist bureaucrat's clemency? A virgin maiden. And so our middle-aged hero Muo, a Westernized romantic and sexual innocent himself, sets off on his bicycle in search of a suitable girl. Muo's quest will take him from a Chengdu mortuary to a rural panda habitat, from an insane asylum to the haunts of the marauding Lolo people. Along the way, he will lose a tooth, his virginity, and his once unshakable faith in psychoanalytic insight. But his quixotic idealism will not waver, even as he comes to see that the chivalrous heart may have room for more than one true love

Un jour ..., en butin d'une bataille ... la Quinte souveraine reçoit quatre trophées: un couple de rhinocéros, un éléphant, et 'une créature muette, noire de la tête aux pieds à l'exception du blanc des yeux, une espèce jamais repérée.' Présage funeste? Défi céleste? Ce butin hors normes déclenche mille péripéties rocambolesques, plaçant l'Empire et son plus haut représentant sous l'imminence de la catastrophe. ... Un conte virtuose de fantaisie et de comique."--Publisher's Web site

"Trois vies chinoises: Un gamin de treize ans, atteint d'une maladie rare qui lui donne l'aspect d'un petit vieux, est acheté par le directeur de la cantine d'une prison. Une jeune fille, encore lycéenne, est convaincue de la culpabilité de son père, gardien d'un réservoir d'eau, dans la disparition de sa mère. Une ancienne forgeronne ranime son fourneau pour fabriquer une chaîne de fer qui attachera son fils à un arbre. Ces trois vies parallèles se déroulent simultanément, dans un même lieu: l'étrangement nommée île de la Noblesse. Un décor gigantesque, digne d'un film de science-fiction, où affluent les déchets et matériels électriques de tout un pays, la Chine moderne, l'atelier du monde. Ces trois histoires, aux images brutales et fulgurantes, s'imposent par leur force poétique et leur paradoxale liberté"--Page 4 of cover

1 edition published in 2002 in Slovenian and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zgodba se dogaja v času kitajske kulturne revolucije, ko je bilo preganjanje in zapiranje izobražencev množično. Glavnega junaka in njegovega prijatelja Lua pošljejo na "prevzgojo" v zaostalo gorsko vasico. S seboj prineseta nekaj, česar vaščani dotlej še nikoli niso videli: violino in budilko. Kot drugi kmetje morata tudi onadva garati na polju, posebno sovražita prenašanje gnoja na hrbtu. A vaški starešina odkrije njun dar pripovedovanja. Pošlje ju v kino v oddaljeno mesto, nato pa morata vaščanom pripovedovati filmske zgodbe. Edinstveni ustni kino spremeni njuno življenje. Pridobita si naklonjenost starešine in domačinov, predvsem pa Šiviljice iz sosednje vasi, v katero se oba zaljubita ... Kaj ima s tem Balzac, pa boste izvedeli, ko knjigo preberete
