520    "In this heartfelt, intimate memoir, Yan Lianke brings the
       reader into his childhood home in Song County in Henan 
       Province, painting a vivid portrait of rural China in the 
       1960s and '70s and chronicling the extraordinary lives of 
       his father and uncles, as well as his own. Yan's parents 
       are so poor that they can only afford to use wheat flour 
       on New Year and festival days, and as a child he dreams of
       fried scallion buns, and once steals from his father to 
       buy a sesame seed cake. Yan yearns to leave the village, 
       however he can, and soon novels become an escape. He 
       resolves to become a writer himself after reading on the 
       back of a novel that its author was given leave to remain 
       in the city of Harbin after publishing her book. In the 
       evenings, after finishing back-breaking shifts hauling 
       stones at a cement factory, sometimes sixteen hours long, 
       he sets to work writing. A career in the Army ultimately 
       allows Yan to escape village life, but he is filled with 
       regrets as he recalls these years of scarcity, turmoil, 
       and poverty. A powerful portrait of the trials of daily 
       life, as well as a philosophical meditation on grief, 
       death, home, and fate, and gleaming throughout with Yan's 
       quick wit and gift for imagery, Three Brothers is a 
       personal portrait of a politically devastating period, and
       a celebration of the power of the family to hold together 
       even in the harshest circumstances"--|cProvided by
