Overview

Author

Reviews
Ha Jin's Dismount Fort teems with vivid life and people who grow ever less strange as their struggles unfold. An exotic subject matter helps, but narrative talent proves victorious. – Time Magazine

Splendidly fluid and clear: Ha Jin has managed to make an utterly alien world seem as familiar as an old friend. – Kirkus Reviews

Ha Jin is a master satirist, not so much of Chinese politics as of the human psyche when it's being twisted and pummeled by some higher authority. – The Chicago Tribune

[Ha Jin] infuses his tales with unforgettable characters who are grappling with questions of honor and shame, passion vs. respectability. – San Jose Mercury News

Mr. Jin's haunting portraits of life in China, particularly during the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s and 1970s, are shattering conventional expectations of what it is to be a Chinese writer, and at the same time attracting torrents of praise. – The Asian Wall Street Journal
