“A political prisoner’s story [interwoven] with the pastoral, tenderly erotic lyricism of a folk tale.” —Publisher’s Weekly “The Remote Country of Women is one of Bai Hua’s major works. For ordinary readers, it provides fresh and entertaining reading. For those who wish to learn about contemporary Chinese culture and history, it gives a tangible picture of the life of a unique Chinese national minority, and of how their culture is placed within the broader context of the mainstream Han culture.” —China Review International, Fall 1995 “A nearly Orwellian height of originality is achieved in Bai Hua’s exposure of the warping banality of totalitarianism. The Remote Country of Women is an ingenious and important book.” —Jeffrey C. Kinkley, St. John’s University
