Reviews

"It's the nature of language to pitch itself against the smothering oneness of the state. Words want to be free. Liu Xiaobo's crime is called 'an incitement to subvert state power.' This is an administrative term for the exercise of free speech--the very activity, Liu writes, that is the mother of truth . . . We try to imagine the nightmarish reality of the closed trial, the confiscated life. We feel the force of Liu Xiaobo's efforts to transcend what he calls 'a paralysis of spirit.' And we see his face in his words." --Don DeLillo It's the nature of language to pitch itself against the smothering oneness of the state. Words want to be free.
