Frog by Yan Mo( Book )
18 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 1,207 libraries worldwide
"The author of Red Sorghum and China's most revered and controversial novelist returns with his first major publication since winning the Nobel Prize. In 2012, the Nobel committee confirmed Mo Yan's position as one of the greatest and most important writers of our time. In his much-anticipated new novel, Mo Yan chronicles the sweeping history of modern China through the lens of the nation's controversial one- child policy. Frog opens with a playwright nicknamed Tadpole who plans to write about his aunt. In her youth, Gugu-the beautiful daughter of a famous doctor and staunch Communist-is revered for her skill as a midwife. But when her lover defects, Gugu's own loyalty to the Party is questioned. She decides to prove her allegiance by strictly enforcing the one-child policy, keeping tabs on the number of children in the village, and performing abortions on women as many as eight months pregnant. In sharply personal prose, Mo Yan depicts a world of desperate families, illegal surrogates, forced abortions, and the guilt of those who must enforce the policy. At once illuminating and devastating, it shines a light into the heart of communist China. "--
Wolf totem by Rong Jiang( Book )
22 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,146 libraries worldwide
"Wolf Totem was released in China in 2004. Written under the pen name Jiang Rong, the quasi autobiographical novel describing a young Han Chinese student's experience living in Inner Mongolia became an overnight sensation, breaking all sales records and selling millions of copies. Now, beautifully translated by Howard Goldblatt, the foremost translator of Chinese fiction, this fascinating book is available in English. Wolf Totem opens in 1960s China during the Cultural Revolution. Searching for spirituality, Beijing intellectual Chen Zhen travels to the pristine grasslands of Inner Mongolia to live among the nomadic Mongols--a proud, brave, and ancient race of people who coexist in perfect harmony with their beautiful but exacting natural environment. At the core of their belief is the notion of a triangular balance between the earth, the wolf, and man, whose fates are all intricately linked. There is prosperity and abundance when the three work together; when they are at cross purposes with each other, there is blight and suffering. The fierce wolves that haunt the steppes of the unforgiving grassland searching for food are locked with the nomads in a profoundly spiritual battle for survival--a life-and-death dance that has gone on between them for thousands of years. The Mongols believe that the wolf is a great and worthy foe that they are divinely instructed to contend with, but also to worship and to learn from. By adopting a wolf cub of his own, Chen's fascination with them blossoms into obsession, and ultimately reverence. But then the peace is shattered with the arrival of Chen's kinsfolk--Han Chinese, sent from the cities to bring modernity to Inner Mongolia. The age-old balance is disrupted, and life on the grasslands will never be the same. Part period epic, part fable for modern days, Wolf Totem is a stinging social commentary on the dangers of China's overaccelerated economic growth, and a heady immersion into the heart of Chinese and Mongolian culture."--Jacket

"Story of the Maichi family, its powerful chieftain, his Han Chinese wife, his first son and presumptive heir, and his second, "idiot" son, the novel's narrator and unlikely hero. The time is the 1930s, the setting a stone fortress overlooking all the family rules. A feud breaks out with a neighboring chieftain; an emissary from the Chinese Nationalists comes to the Maichis' aid with tools of modern warfare. In exchange, fields of bright red poppies, valuable in the Nationalist-sponsored heroin trade, are to be planted instead of grain in a deal that makes the family even richer and earns them the enmity of nearly everyone."--Jacket
