Mr. Muo's travelling couch by Sijie Dai( Sound Recording )
14 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and No Linguistic Content and held by 341 libraries worldwide
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

"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

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
