Temporarily out of stock
An electrifying story about the explosive power of secrets, from a celebrated Chinese novelist
Infamous local thug Hongyang is found dead by his lover after a night of debauched drinking. Hongyang is a man with plenty of enemies, any one of whom could be responsible for his death…
Piecing together the story of Hongyang’s violent criminal past through the voices of his friends, family, and his former lover Aiwan, Wake Me Up at Nine in the Morning is a breathless and immersive journey into China’s criminal underworld. It is also a terrifying snapshot of a society in which cynicism and suspicion reign supreme. Written with Yi’s trademark confident prose and taut, suspenseful style, this is an unmissable read from a star of Chinese literature.
