Fiction • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Pairing narrator B.D. Wong and author Dai Sijie is wise matchmaking. (This is their second cooperative effort.) Wong channels Sijie's sense of naïveté, wonderment, and layered storytelling, without introducing a Western sense of irony. The result is a hypnotizing quixotic tale about Mr. Muo, a French-educated student of Freud, who returns to his native China to interpret dreams. In his quest to free his imprisoned lover, he loses his virginity, challenges a crooked judge, and is mistaken for an escaped madman. Wong paces the work, starting slowly and methodically building to a crescendo as our hero is set upon by acrobatic highway bandits and then saved by his knowledge of French.
