              Award-winning author Chen Qiufan's Waste Tide is a thought-provoking vision of the future. Translated by Ken Liu, who brought Cixin Liu's Hugo Award-winning The Three Body Problem to English-speaking readers. Mimi is drowning in the world's trash. She's a waste worker on Silicon ...Isle, where electronics -- from cell phones and laptops to bots and bionic limbs -- are sent to be recycled. These amass in towering heaps, polluting every spare inch of land. On this island off the coast of China, the fruits of capitalism and consumer culture come to a toxic end. Mimi and thousands of migrant waste workers like her are lured to Silicon Isle with the promise of steady work and a better life. They're the lifeblood of the island's economy, but are at the mercy of those in power. A storm is brewing, between ruthless local gangs, warring for control. Ecoterrorists, set on toppling the status quo. American investors, hungry for profit. And a Chinese-American interpreter, searching for his roots. As these forces collide, a war erupts -- between the rich and the poor; between tradition and modern ambition; between humanity's past and its future. Mimi, and others like her, must decide if they will remain pawns in this war or change the rules of the game altogether. An accomplished eco-techno-thriller with heart and soul as well as brain. Chen Qiufan is an astute observer, both of the present world and of the future that the next generation is in danger of inheriting. - David Mitchell, New York Times bestselling author of Cloud Atlas

              Eye Pupil (EPUB ebook)

              By Qiufan, Chen

              Socrates: let's imagine a cavernous basement with a long passageway. The sun can shine from outside. Some people have lived in this cave since childhood, with their legs and neck tied. They can't walk or turn head. They can only look forward at the back wall of the cave. But they... got a light, for far behind them, there was a fire burning. Between the fire and the prisoners (that is, behind the prisoners) there was a way up; There is a low wall along the road, like a puppet player who puts a barrier in front of the audience so they can lift the puppets up to the barrier.
