This is a nice set of stories showing life in China for everyday people. Being fiction, it is hard to say whether it is an accurate depiction of China, but it's probably pretty close. In these stories, focus rests briefly on brutishness, petty cruelty, small-mindedness, and all the other everyday evils of daily life, with two particularly ugly scenes setting the tone in the first 2 stories as a 'halfwit' man is tricked into becoming complicit in the killing of his only friend, and a small boy is tortured by a vendor for stealing an apple. There are some nice scenes, too, but not so many, or so frequently that we can forget that under the nice veneer, any of these people may posses a much crueler side, as simply another aspect of their very normalness. The people in these stories struggle with finding the balance between conformity and individuality, good behavior and servility, and the wrong step at any point can prove disastrous in a society where everyone is watching and eagerly waiting for their chance to get ahead of you without being seen to be trying too hard.

This was a really good book but holy crap was it depressing. Great story of the life struggles of Fugui with the history of Communist China as the background. If you liked this try "Wild Swans" on of my all time favorite books.

I knew I'd had this book for a while before reading it, but to my shock it's been 14 years! I am glad I did in the end though, because its a good read. Scatalogical - especially the early chapters, earthy, rabelasian, absurd yet funny and ultimately very moving. Brothers follows the half brothers Baldy Li (he's not bald - just so poor as a child tthat his mother would shave his head to save barber costs) and Song Gang, as they enduring poverty, the Cultural Revolution, the opening up of China's economy and the boom years of the aughts. At the same time, it acutely grasps the ups, downs and roundabouts of rapid cultural change in medium size Chinese towns over half a century. Baldy Li and Song Gang are destined for very different fates, whilst coming from exactly the same background and circumstances; in a previous generation their fates would have been close to identical.

Supported by an interesting and comic cast of supporting characters who all have their own story arcs to follow - from bully to bullied, from virtuous to wanton, from intellectual to factotum, and all the while backed up by the Greek chorus that is "the townspeople" this is compelling. Admirably translated too. Recommended
