"A chilling dystopian tale of politics, inequality, marriage, love, and rebellion, set in a near-future China, which further explores the themes of the classic "The Handmaid's Tale" and "When She Woke." China's One Child Policy and its cultural preference for male heirs have created a society overrun by 40 million unmarriageable men. This is one such leftover man's quest for love and family under a State that seeks to glorify its past mistakes and impose order through authoritarian measures, reinvigorated Communist ideals, and social engineering."--Provided by the publisher.
