'The Paper Menagerie is distinguished not only by its inventive imagination and emotional acuity – it has, as a whole, an impressive and cumulative coherance ... The glittering wit on the surface of these pieces belies their righteous anger and profound melancholy' TLS.

'By the end of this collection, you return, blinking, into the sharp light of the here and now, and mourn those few short days when you were floating in Liu, heady with the thrill of a life in which your senses were sparked up like phosphorescent antennae to the wonders of our existence on this "boat in space"' Big Issue.

'The Paper Menagerie will cement Liu as a once-in-a-lifetime author. Certainly his work is both stimulating and intoxicating and is the catalyst that sees contemporary Chinese fiction propelled to the forefront of sci-fi' 10/10, SciFiNow.

'When he's good, Liu is very very very good indeed' SFX.

'This captivating collection of award-winning short stories is full of wonder and magical realism' BuzzFeed.
