Raise The Red Lantern by Su Tong has to be one of the most well-translated and well-written books of all time. It was written and translated so well that it is one of the most disturbing books that I’ve ever read. Even more disturbing than Stephen King. This book gave me the goosebumps and I really couldn’t bring myself to read the remaining two novellas after I’ve finished the first one (with the same name as the title of the book).
This novella has also been made into a movie. For some basic info, click here.
