In "Change", Mo Yan, the 2012 Nobel Laureate in Literature, personalizes the political and social changes in his country over the past few decades in this novella disguised as autobiography-or vice-versa.

Unlike most historical narratives from China, which are pegged to political events, "Change" is a representative of "people's history," a bottom-up rather than top-down view of a country in flux.

By moving back and forth in time and focusing on small events and everyday people, Mo Yan breathes life into history by describing the effects of larger-than-life events on the average citizen.
