Dream of Ding Village by Yan Lianke is a powerful book: like The Plague by Albert Camus it shows how quickly a society can degenerate under pressure…

Ding Village is a microcosm of society: it has been a small, inconsequential part of China’s backdrop for centuries. Its traditions and ways of being have withstood all kinds of change over time, but the onset of HIV/AIDS means it is doomed.
