Contemporary Beijing comes alive in the hands of a young literary star

About the Author

An Yu was born and raised in Beijing, and left at the age of eighteen to study in New York at NYU. A graduate of the NYU MFA in Creative Writing, she writes her fiction in English. She is twenty-six years old and lives between Paris and Hong Kong. Braised Pork is her first novel.


An elegant, dreamlike tale of a woman's self-realisation in contemporary Beijing... a superb character study of a woman unrooted... Yu's writing has an arresting, unadorned lyricism * Daily Telegraph *
A seductive, sharply observed tale of love, loss and hope that moves from high-rise Beijing to rural Tibet and the mysterious, magical 'world of water' -- Fanny Blake * Daily Mail *
A startlingly original imagination... Braised Pork is a sensitive portrait of alienated young womanhood as it is set free * Guardian *
Rich and strange ... Braised Pork is a debut that gets under your skin -- Anthony Cummins * Observer *
Braised Pork is mesmerising, incisive and utterly disarming. An Yu writes beautifully about loneliness, the experience of isolation - from others, from one's own past - and the possibility of human connection, however fragile. * Rosie Price *
