"Brilliant and terrifying...Lord unmasks contemporary China and elucidates the cruel promise of China Spring. The novelist bears witness to China's struggle from an extraordinary perspective...This eloquent book's power to give hope to the Chinese people depends on the steady gaze of Americans and others with the not-so-simple freedom to read its message linked in blood."
