    [synopsis] => From one  of China's most acclaimed writers, his first work of nonfiction to appear in  English: a unique, intimate look at the Chinese experience over the last  several decades, told through personal stories and astute analysis that  sharply illuminate the country's meteoric economic and social  transformation. Framed by ten phrases common in the Chinese vernacular-"people," "leader,"  "reading," "writing," "Lu Xun" (one of the most influential Chinese writers  of the twentieth century), "disparity," "revolution," "grassroots,"  "copycat," and "bamboozle"-China in Ten Words reveals as never before the  world's most populous yet oft-misunderstood nation. In "Disparity," for  example, Yu Hua illustrates the mind-boggling economic gaps that separate  citizens of the country. In "Copycat," he depicts the escalating trend of  piracy and imitation as a creative new form of revolutionary action. And in  "Bamboozle," he describes the increasingly brazen practices of trickery,  fraud, and chicanery that are, he suggests, becoming a way of life at every  level of society.     Characterized by Yu Hua's trademark wit, insight, and courage, China in Ten  Words is a refreshingly candid vision of the "Chinese miracle" and all its  consequences, from the singularly invaluable perspective of a writer living  in China today.
