A benign old monk listens to a prospective novice's tale of depravity, violence, and carnivorous excess while a morbid family drama unfurls.Taking you on a bizarre romp through the Chinese countryside, the author treats you to a cornucopia of cooked animal flesh ostrich, camel, donkey, and dog, as well as the more common varieties. As the dual narratives merge into one another, each informing and illuminating the other, he probes the character and lifestyle of modern China.
