How dull to have a gun and not shoot. Guns should be fired.

New in Chinese: “The Chilli Bean Paste Clan” by YAN Ge

The latest in "Dispatches" from Words Without Borders. By Nicky Harman: You might imagine that I thought long and hard in choosing my best untranslated book, because China has so many writers and so little of their work reaches the West, at least in English. But I plumped without any hesitation for Yan Ge’s The Chilli Bean Paste Clan. (The title in Chinese is 《我们家》Our Family.)
