Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"From one of the most exciting voices in contemporary Chinese literature, an uncanny and playful bestiary that blurs the line between human and beast ... In the fictional Chinese city of Yong'an, an amateur cryptozoologist is commissioned to uncover the stories of its fabled beasts. These creatures live alongside humans in near-inconspicuousness-save their greenish skin, serrated earlobes, and strange birthmarks. Aided by her elusive former professor and his enigmatic assistant, our narrator sets off to document each beast, and is slowly drawn deeper into a mystery that threatens her very sense of self. Part detective story, part metaphysical inquiry, Strange Beasts of China engages existential questions of identity, humanity, love, and morality with whimsy and stylistic verve. First published in the UK by Tilted Axis"-- Provided by publisher.
