    Summary

    The boy shimmers into his mind’s eye, but he tamps it down and reaches for generics. Bold strokes. Swipes of sloppy paint, like a child masquerading as a master painter—look, and see what masterpiece I have created! A man, fully-formed, muscular, glistening under the hot lights. Red lights. He grunts and tips his head against the wall, cigarette dribbling from his lips. He hasn’t even finished it and he already wants another.

    Summary

    Arlong did not have any medical expertise whatsoever, except in treating shallow scrapes and bruises. To say that he had leapt before looking in bringing this Quanzi home would be an understatement.

    In other words, Arlong saves Quanzi.

    Summary

    Li Huiquan has served his time in a labor camp, but life on the outside is difficult. Under-educated and lonely, he moves in with family in Beijing to start fresh. When his best friend Chazi escapes prison and runs to him, he is pulled into a spiral of love, sex, and anger. After what feels like an endless string of crushing disappointments, he meets an outsider that unwittingly shows him that there's more to life than suffering.
