Opis

s it ever too late to change your life?

Elegant, wry and moving, The Funeral Cryer tells the tale of one woman’s mid-life re-awakening in contemporary rural China and proves that it’s never too late to alter your fate.

The Funeral Cryer long ago accepted the mundane realities of her life: avoided by fellow villagers because of the stigma attached to her job as a professional mourner and under-appreciated by The Husband, whose fecklessness has pushed the couple close to the brink of break-up. But just when things couldn’t be bleaker, The Funeral Cryer takes a leap of faith – and in so doing things start to take a surprising turn for the better . . .

Dark, moving and wry, The Funeral Cryer is both an illuminating depiction of a 'left behind’ society – and proof that it’s never too late to change your life.
What readers have been saying about The Funeral Cryer:

’A beautiful, thought-provoking book […] incredibly humorous’ – J. Wells, Five-star Reader Review
'A stunning debut’ – Stacey, Five-star Reader Review

’A first person narrative that shows how the life of a middle-aged woman working as a funeral cryer in China is deeply linked to the people who touch her life and the way they treat her.’ – Kate Poels, Five-star Reader Review

’A remarkable novel that explores themes of marriage, family relationships, elderly care, and gender equality […] this book offers a unique reading experience and an opportunity for deep contemplation.’ – Rui, Five-star Reader Review

’Excellent literary fiction. […] Simultaneously the story speaks to the rural economic desperation, the separation of town and country, they way the young move to the cities and are often left with no other option to finance themselves than selling themselves. The huge discrepancy between the haves and have-nots is very evident.’ – Cheryl M-M, Five-star Reader Review
