The Dark Road
Janet Berkman's review
Feb 05, 2014
This novel is a disturbing tale of life under the Family Planning regime in China. Kongzi longs for a son to carry on his family's dynastic name, and he and his wife Meili are forced to flee their village when she becomes pregnant a second time. This work also looks at the issues around electronic waste and the terrifying impact of the significant recycling industry on people and the environment as well as the fate of families without residency permits, struggling to eke out an existence when they are not acknowledged by the state. This is a difficult book to read, but also difficult to put down.
