    Lots of fun A satire of bureaucratic China with a dauntless heroine It pulls you along quickly as Li Xuelian outwits one official after another But you also feel her anguish as her problem remains unresolved Very funny, clever I hope to readby this author.

    I love Liu Zhenyun s writing style pared back, dry and very funny He uses repetition to great comic effect His main character is a complex anti heroine, Li Xuelian, a young village woman with a husband and son When she becomes pregnant for the second time, she hatches a plan she and her husband will get a fake divorce, she will have the baby, and then they will reunite as a family of four There s just one problem while they are separated to await the birth of their second child, he meets I love Liu Zhenyun s writing style pared back, dry and very funny He uses repetition to great comic effect His main character is a complex anti heroine, Li Xuelian, a young village woman with a husband and son When she becomes pregnant for the second time, she hatches a plan she and her husband will get a fake divorce, she will have the baby, and then they will reunite as a family of four There s just one problem while they are separated to await the birth of their second child, he meets another woman By the time she has her daughter, he has remarried and his new wife is pregnant Li is furious, and her desire for revenge, to take her husband, at the very least, to court, sparks a snowballing series of events that see her pitched in litigious battle with bureaucrats from the village level to the National People s Congress It s fast paced, cleverly plotted and delightful to read I did wonder how the author had got away with what is at times a truly cutting satire of the political system and then realised that throughout the book, no one from the Party ever appears as such, in other words, while China is in fact run as a Party state, with the Communist Party having the final say so, for example, a municipal party secretary will trump a mayor when it comes to important decisions or policy , the book only deals with the representatives of the state The Party remains safely out of sight But Chinese readers are unlikely to miss this point they are used to filling in the blanks I have seen that there is a translation, under the clumsy title, I Did Not Kill My Husband, but can t recommend it as I haven t read it
