Author: Bei Cun
Translation: Jeanne Boden
Mazhuo’s Liefde (Mazhuo’s Love) is a dramatic story about an impossible love affair. The insatiable desire of the three protagonists with Mazhuo at the center juxtaposed with the triviality of daily life in China in the 1990s evokes an oppressive atmosphere. Bei Cun’s favorite themes of sex, death and love dominate the story.
