Summary
"A playwright nicknamed Tadpole plans to write about his aunt. In her youth, Gugu-the beautiful daughter of a famous doctor and staunch Communist-is revered for her skills as a midwife and healer. But when her lover defects, Gugu's own loyalty to the Party is questioned. She proves 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 far along 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. Illuminating and devastating, it shines a light into the heart of communist China. "--Provided by publisher
