Mo Yan was once offered the Nobel Prize in Literature for his paintings as a author "who with hallucinatory realism merges folks stories, background and the contemporary"
In those twelve tales, we see the extraordinary diversity of Mo Yan's imaginative and prescient - which critics reviewing The Republic of Wine have in comparison to that of Tolstoy. The tales diversity from the tragic to the comedian, notwithstanding Mo Yan's humor is often tinged with a coloration of black. They embrace, too, the author's deep and abiding love of his fellow guy, equaled in simple terms by means of his excessive disdain of paperwork and repression. His fiction is rarely didactic. Satire, myth, the supernatural, secret: all are found in this impressive, and extremely relaxing, volume.

But also they were outlaws, enemies, untouchables, doomed with absolute certainty to extinction within a year or two.
But simultaneously, true to the Principles of doublethink, the Party taught that the proles were natural inferiors who must be kept in subjection, like animals, by the application of a few simple rules. In reality very little was known about the proles. It was not necessary to know much. So long as they continued to work and breed, their other activities were without importance. Left to themselves, like cattle turned loose upon the plains of Argentina, they had reverted to a style of life that appeared to be natural to them, a sort of ancestral pattern.
And yet he was in the right! They were wrong and he was right. The obvious, the silly, and the true had got to be defended. Truisms are true, hold on to that! The solid world exists, its laws do not change. Stones are hard, water is wet, objects unsupported fall towards the earth’s centre.
