The farmers of Paradise Countyhave been leading a hardscrabble life unchanged for generations. The Communistgovernment has encouraged them to plant garlic, but selling the crop is not assimple as they believed. Warehouses fill up, taxes skyrocket, and governmentofficials maltreat even those who have traveled for days to sell their harvest.A surplus on the garlic market ensues, and the farmers must watch in horror astheir crops wither and rot in the fields. Families are destroyed by the randomimprisonment of young and old for supposed crimes against the state.  The prisoners languish inhorrifying conditions in their cells, with only their strength of character andthoughts of their loved ones to save them from madness. Meanwhile, a blindminstrel incites the masses to take the law into their own hands, and a riot ofapocalyptic proportions follows with savage and unforgettable consequences. The Garlic Ballads is a powerful visionof life under the heel of an inflexible and uncaring government. It is also adelicate story of love between man and woman, father and child, friend andfriend—and the struggle to maintain that love despite overwhelming obstacles.

Mo Yan was born in 1955 to a peasant family in Shandong. He is the author of Red Sorghum, The Republic of Wine, Shifu, and You�ll Do Anything for a Laugh. He and his family live in Beijing.
