Stick Out Your Tongue by Ma Jian

Book Description

A Chinese writer whose marriage has fallen apart travels to Tibet. As he wanders through the countryside, he witnesses a sky burial, shares a tent with a nomad on a pilgrimage to atone for sleeping with his daughter, meets a silversmith who has hung the wind-dried corpse of his lover on the walls of his cave, and hears the story of a young female incarnate lama who died during a Buddhist initiation rite. In the thin air of the high plateau, the divide between fact and fiction becomes confused and the man is drawn deep into an alien culture which haunts his dreams. Famously banned in China in 1987, Stick Out Your Tongue, is the hugely influential book that set Ma Jian on the road to exile, and still makes it difficult for him to publish his work in China today.
