Yiyun Li is the winner of the prestigious Hemingway Foundation/PEN Award. The Vagrants, set in 1979 China, is the story of those affected by the execution ofa 28-year-old counterrevolutionary. Though suffering, Li’s characters nevertheless struggle to maintain hope amid cruel circumstance.
“Li records these events … with such a magisterial sense of direction that the reader can’t help being drawn into the novel.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
