Si può essere una strega senza saperlo? Mina è pronta a giurare di no, però non è facile sfuggire ad un cacciatore di demoni convinto del contrario, soprattutto se ha l’aspetto e il carattere di Roy. Lei è bruttina ma non del tutto stupida, quindi sa per certo di dover stare alla larga dalle assurdità sul soprannaturale e soprattutto... da un uomo tanto bello e sfrontato arrivato da chissà dove. Eppure le basta un’occhiata per non riuscire più a smettere di desiderarlo. Ecco, se lei fosse realmente una strega allora gli strani sogni che fa su di lui sarebbero veri e le basterebbe tenerli nascosti per lasciarlo morire. Mina smette di pensare e si tuffa a scrivere fanfiction, sprofondando nella storia di Gilbert De Vries che è freddo come il marmo e seducente come un peccato mortale, perché è un vampiro. Gilbert è splendido quanto Roy ma le appartiene perché lo ha creato. Eppure all’improvviso oltre lo schermo del computer qualcosa sfugge al controllo di Mina sgusciando nel mondo reale. Si può essere una strega senza saperlo? Ora che avverte una presenza inquietante nelle ombre e che la comunità virtuale FanfictionClub rivela dei segreti allarmanti, Mina non ne è più tanto sicura.

This powerful novel by Mo Yan—one of contemporary China’s most famous and prolific writers—is both a stirring love story and an unsparing critique of political corruption during the final years of the Qing Dynasty, China’s last imperial epoch. Sandalwood Death is set during the Boxer Rebellion (1898–1901)—an anti-imperialist struggle waged by North China’s farmers and craftsmen in opposition to Western influence. Against a broad historical canvas, the novel centers on the interplay between its female protagonist, Sun Meiniang, and the three paternal figures in her life. One of these men is her biological father, Sun Bing, an opera virtuoso and a leader of the Boxer Rebellion. As the bitter events surrounding the revolt unfold, we watch Sun Bing march toward his cruel fate, the gruesome “sandalwood punishment,” whose purpose, as in crucifixions, is to keep the condemned individual alive in mind-numbing pain as long as possible. Filled with the sensual imagery and lacerating expressions for which Mo Yan is so celebrated, Sandalwood Death brilliantly exhibits a range of artistic styles, from stylized arias and poetry to the antiquated idiom of late Imperial China to contemporary prose. Its starkly beautiful language is here masterfully rendered into English by renowned translator Howard Goldblatt.

The year is 2196. The great Empire of Ice, Chung Kuo, has finally been shaken after more than a century of peace enforced by brutal tyranny. The Minister of the Edict—an official responsible for licensing all technology that could lead to Change—has been assassinated. The seven ruling T’ang struggle to maintain Stasis, even as their mile-high, continent-spanning cities descend into chaos. Amid the chaos, the rebels responsible for the assassination seize the opportunity to effect Change. But the assassination was orchestrated by those far closer to the ruling power, and this betrayal—the first of many—will lead them all into the world-shattering War of Two Directions.
