'Playful and wonderfully dark, The Noodle Maker confirms Ma Jian as a Chinese Kundera. The funniest book I've read in a long time' Philip Marsden
Ma Jian left Beijing for Hong Kong in 1987, shortly before his books were banned in China. After the hand-over of Hong Kong he moved to Germany and then London, where he now lives. His acclaimed book Red Dust won the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award 2002.
"Compelling, inventive and bleakly funny" * Big Issue * "Deep black humour...owes a debt to Italo Calvino" * Daily Telegraph * "Ma's writing shines a light that is both humane and angry into some of the dustiest corners of a closed and often forgotten society" * Observer * "Playful and wonderfully dark...a Chinese Kundera" -- Philip Marsden
