• China dream

    Jian Ma

    Ma Daode, le directeur du tout nouveau Bureau du Rêve Chinois, collectionne les maîtresses comme les pots-de-vin. Entre ses plans de lavage de cerveaux à grande échelle et les événements à la gloire du parti auquel il doit participer, son quotidien est plutôt bien réglé... jusqu'à ce que son passé refoulé commence à refaire surface.

    Sous les allures d'une fable cruelle, mélangeant fiction et réalité, Ma Jian dresse le portrait de la Chine actuelle et dévoile la tyrannie qui consiste à tenter d'éradiquer tout événement passé qui pourrait gêner la marche du pouvoir. Un chef-d'oeuvre de subversion et de drôlerie.

  • Dans la Chine contemporaine, entre communisme et capitalisme, un écrivain très pauvre rêve de voir son nom dans le dictionnaire des grands écrivains chinois. Il est chargé par le comité central du Parti d'écrire un livre à la gloire d'un contemporain qui peut être vu comme un nouveau Li Feng, héros de la Révolution. Il choisit pour modèle son meilleur ami, un donneur de sang professionnel.

Ensemble ils ont une fille, mais Kongzi, qui veut à tout prix un fils pour poursuivre la lignée de sa célèbre famille, met a nouveau Meili enceinte, sans attendre la permission légale. Lorsque les agents de contrôle des naissances envahissent le village, ils fuient vers le fleuve Yangtze. Commence alors une longue cavale vers le Sud, à travers une Chine dévastée.

  • Victime de la répression menée par les autorités chinoises sur les artistes dans les années 1980, Ma Jian a trente ans quand il décide de quitter Beijing. Au cours d'un périple de trois ans, il découvre un pays aux multiples facettes déchiré entre ses traditions et les effets de sa modernisation. Des plaines de l'extrême ouest au Tibet aux côtes du sud, l'artiste-aventurier livre une vision sans concession du pays qui l'a vu naître, mais dans lequel il n'est plus qu'un étranger.

    Au cours de la révolution culturelle, monsieur xu, professeur de dessin, a connu la déchéance et payé d'exclusion son "droitisme".
    Dix ans ont passé. le narrateur, son ancien élève, est en route vers celui qui demeure, dans sa mémoire, un maître adulé et haï. lorsque parurent ses nouvelles "tibétaines", la mendiante de shigatze, ma jian avait étonné par l'audace et l'efficacité de ses descriptions. cette fois, c'est la violence de ses aveux qui fascine. a petites touches furtives, parfois coupables jusqu'à la nausée, une confession prend forme.
    La trahison, la corruption d'un idéal, la profanation que le temps inflige à la pureté des premiers élans - tel est, sous la critique du régime chinois, le véritable sujet de ce livre. et c'est ici composé avec un sens de "l'impressionnisme" narratif qui révèle un écrivain dans le plein éclat de son talent.

  • La mendiante de Shigatze

    Jian Ma

    Bien plus qu'une relation de voyage, les cinq récits ici rassemblés proposent une vision saisissante d'un monde que l'on croyait connaître. Le Tibet visité, interrogé et intimement découvert par le Chinois Ma Jian révèle en effet un peuple et un pays d'une inquiétante étrangeté dont la dureté et la violence sont extrêmes. Les descriptions - celles des funérailles célestes durant lesquelles les cadavres sont livrés aux vautours, celles des incestes, des viols, des mortifications... -, aussi insoutenables que fascinantes, n'ont pas manqué de susciter les foudres de la censure en ce qu'elles prêtent d'irréductible singularité à un peuple supposé se fondre dans la grande Chine. En véritable écrivain, Ma Jian parvient à retranscrire le pouvoir fantasmatique d'une réalité cachée mais incontestable.

    My painter friends think I am a die-hard conservative, my writer friends think I am a man of loose morals. In Jushlin Temple I am a quiet disciple, in the Propaganda Department I am a decadent youth. Women call me a cynical artist, the police call me a hooligan. Well, they can think what they like. I only have 20,000 days left to live-'In 1983, Ma Jian turned 30 and was overwhelmed by the desire to escape the confines of his life in Beijing. All around him, China was changing. Deng Xiaoping was introducing economic reform but clamping down on 'Spiritual Pollution'; young people were rebelling. With his long hair, denim jeans and artistic friends, Ma Jian was under surveillance from his work unit and the police. His ex-wife was seeking custody of their daughter; his girlfriend was sleeping with another man; and he could no longer find the inspiration to write or paint. One day he bought a train ticket to the westernmost border of China and set off in search of himself. Ma Jian's journey would last three years and take him to deserts and overpopulated cities, from scenes of barbarity to havens of tranquillity and beauty. The result is an utterly unique book: an insight into the teeming contradictions of China that only a man who was both an insider and an outsider in his own country could have written.

    Ma Jian

    Meili, a young peasant woman born in the remote heart of China, is married to Kongzi, a village school teacher, and a distant descendant of Confucius. They have a daughter, but desperate for a son to carry on his illustrious family line, Kongzi gets Meili pregnant again without waiting for official permission. When family planning officers storm the village to arrest violators of the population control policy, mother, father and daughter escape to the Yangtze River and begin a fugitive life.



    For years they drift south through the poisoned waterways and ruined landscapes of China, picking up work as they go along, scavenging for necessities and flying from police detection. As Meili's body continues to be invaded by her husband and assaulted by the state, she fights to regain control of her fate and that of her unborn child.

  • From the award-winning author of Red Dust, comes a virtuoso piece of 'red humour' - a darkly funny novel about the absurdities and cruelties of life in modern China.



    Every week, a writer of political propaganda and a professional blood donor meet for dinner. They are unlikely friends - one of them tortured by his 'art', the other fat and wealthy from the earthy business of providing spare blood for the citizens of China. Over the course of one especially gastronomic evening, the writer starts to complain about his latest Party commission: the story of an ordinary soldier who sacrifices his life to the revolutionary cause. This is not the novel he wants to write, he tells his friend. Inside his head lives an unwritten book about the people he knows or sees everyday on the streets - people who lives are far more representative of the world in which he lives...

  • A Chinese writer whose marriage has fallen apart travels to Tibet. As he wanders through the countryside, he witnesses the sky burial of a Tibetan woman who died during childbirth, shares a tent with a nomad who is walking to a sacred mountain to seek forgiveness for sleeping with his daughter, meets a silversmith who has hung the wind-dried corpse of his lover to the walls of his cave, and hears the story of a young female incarnate lama who died during a Buddhist initiation rite. In the thin air of the high plateau, the divide between fact and fiction becomes confused and the man is drawn deep into an alien culture he knew nothing about, and which haunts his dreams.
