Red Poppies by Alai is an interesting piece not least because it is one of the few literary works that has passed the censors of China to make it s way from Tibet to the western world Because of this I have suspicions that the writer who is Chinese though has Tibetan heritage portrayed the Tibetan people within the novel in a way the censors would approve ofThe story takes place in twentieth century Tibet and the narrator is the second and youngest son of a Tibetan warlord the Maichi family He tells us with nearly the first sentence of the books certainly the first paragraph I don t recall the book is somewhere in the house but I am lazy that he is an idiot Everyone thinks so His older brother the heir his mother his nanny who is also his first lover his father everyoneHowever it became apparent to me pretty early on that the narrator is not an idiot at all he s actually very perceptive People only think he s an idiot because he sometimes says things that are socially and politically inept The plot follows The Idiot s moves and sexual exploits his good and bad fortune as his father falls ill The book is filled with hinted magic or magical realism Think One Thousand Years of Solitude by Garcia Maruez so the magic could be coincidence but could also be magicThough the book is interesting I also feel like it dragged on a bit Certain things were brought up throughout the book that I thought would have a profound impact only to be cast by the wayside later An interesting read if you re interested in what kind of literature makes it past the Chinese censors but not my favorite read of the year that s for sure despite the book being deep and nuancedIf you re interested in this book check out your local bookstore please please please before looking on

This is a wonderfully written book It is bold extravagant and shocking in parts It has the feel of authenticity although who knows what the world of chieftains in pre revolutionary Tibet was really like The author speaks frankly about slaves and the freedoms a chief exercises over the bodies of his womenIt is weak on plot following instead a timeline with developments as appropriate Making the voice the main character an idiot seems to be a device to avoid the logic of literary development Things happen and sometimes the idiot deals brilliantly and some advancement is made in the fortunes of his ruling class family If things go badly well he is an idiotThe references to the Red and White Hans towards the end are obvious But one would have liked to learn about the Tibetans in Tibet as opposed to those in the story Did they live under similar conditions Did they face similar choices between cash crops and food and tradeWithal this is a book that represents a people who were truly alive
