Yiyun Li has written a beautiful book. Through the lives of individuals in a small sad town in China we see how people suffer thru these terrible political times. I don’t usually like politics in my fiction, but there is no escaping how the political climate has destroyed so many people’s lives. She illustrates this perfectly.

Lovely prose, good story, deadly narration
What made the experience of listening to The Vagrants the most enjoyable?
The writing is poetic and the images vivid. Characters are interesting and thoughtfully, carefully, gradually revealed. It is a grim story and a grim setting. Very interesting experience of "small city" 1970's China and some of its citizens.
Would you be willing to try another one of Jackie Chung’s performances?
I would not listen to another audiobook narrated by Jackie Chung, however. Her reading is flat--even compared to my own mind's!
