Full description of the book The Four Books:SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE 2016. "One of China's greatest living authors and fiercest satirists". (Guardian). In the ninety-ninth district of a sprawling labour camp, the Author, Musician, Scholar, Theologian and Technician - and hundreds just like them - are undergoing Re-education, to restore their revolutionary zeal and credentials. In charge of this process is the Child, who delights in draconian rules, monitoring behaviour and confiscating treasured books.
