In Red Dust, Ma Jian tells the story of how, on his 30th birthday, facing arrest for spiritual pollution in his journalistic job in Beijing, he fakes an attack of hepatitis and flees into the Chinese hinterland.

Excerpt from Desert Dust In the estimate of the affable brakeman (a gentleman wearing sky-blue army pantaloons tucked into cowhide boots, half-buttoned vest, flannel shirt open at the throat, and upon his red hair a flaring-brimmed black slouch hat) we were making a fair average of twenty miles an hour across the greatest country on earth. It was a flat country of far horizons, and for vast stretches peopled mainly, as one might judge from the car windows, by antelope and the equally curious rodents styled prairie dogs.

This is a book about British India during the 1930's and 40's. It is seen through my eyes as a boy, from as young as I can remember, up to the age of sixteen. It covers British Indian life, their customs, idiosyncrasies and superstitions, and Indian superstitions, the Hindu churel being one, the poltergeist another. It talks of Indian traditions and games adopted by British children: goli dunda, Diwali with its fireworks and kite flying, "fighting kites" with patang, choorkee and "Lucknow Nuck" manja - the tissue and bamboo kite, line reel, and crushed glass covered thread to cut opponent's lines! And your own fingers! It includes some of India's wild life, from black leopards through red monkeys to green Alexandra parakeets.
