1. Frog [2014]

Book
387 pages ; 24 cm
Frog is a richly complex new novel about China's one-child policy by Mo Yan, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature 2012. A respected midwife, Gugu combines modern medical knowledge with a healer's touch to save the lives of village women and their babies. After a disastrous love affair with a defector leaves Gugu reeling, she throws herself into enforcing China's draconian new family planning policy by any means necessary. Her blind devotion to the party line spares no one, not her own family, not even herself. Spanning the pre-revolutionary era and the country's modern-day consumer society, Mo Yan's taut and engrossing examination of Chinese society will be read for generations to come. "Mo Yan deserves a place in world literature. His voice will find its way into the heart of the reader, just as Kundera and Garcia Marquez have". (Amy Tan). "One of China's leading writers ...his work rings with refreshing authenticity". (Time). "His idiom has the spiralling invention and mytho-maniacal quality of much world literature of a high order, from Vargas Llosa to Rushdie". (Observer). Mo Yan was born in 1955 in Gaomi County in Shandong province, China. He is the author of various novellas and short stories and numerous novels including Red Sorghum, The Republic of Wine, Big Breasts and Wide Hips, Life and Death Are Wearing Me Out and The Garlic Ballads. In 2012 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Howard Goldblatt is the award-winning translator of numerous works of contemporary Chinese into English. He has been awarded the National Translation Award from the American Literary Translation Association and a Guggenheim Fellowship.

「藍宇」是第一部由中國網上小說改編而成的男同性戀電影, 原著小說名為「北京故事」, 全書長三十一章, 故事敘述高幹子弟陳捍東與窮書生藍宇一段發生在北京橫跨十年的同志愛情故事. 看過原著小說的人都應該會認同「北京故事」十分適合改編成電影, 它的劇情非常豐富, 從最初陳捍東用錢買下藍宇的初夜, 他們發展出真感情, 陳捍東要與林靜平結婚, 到他離婚後再遇藍宇. 故事的發展一節緊扣一節, 他們的離合散聚都很動人. 電影版為了使情節更集中在捍東與藍宇身上, 删減了捍東與靜平離婚的真相, 有興趣的人可補看小說.
