WINNER OF THE 2018 LUCIEN STRYK ASIAN TRANSLATION PRIZE The English-language premiere of Qiu Miaojin's coming-of-age novel about queer teenagers in Taiwan, a cult classic in China and winner of the 1995 China Times Literature Award. An NYRB Classics Original Set in the post-martial-law era of late-1980s Taipei, Notes of a Crocodile is a coming-of-age story of queer misfits discovering love, friendship, and artistic affinity while hardly studying at Taiwan’s most prestigious university. Told through the eyes of an anonymous lesbian narrator nicknamed Lazi, this cult classic is a postmodern pastiche of diaries, vignettes, mash notes, aphorisms, exegesis, and satire by an incisive prose stylist and major countercultural figure. Afflicted by her fatalistic attraction to Shui Ling, an older woman, Lazi turns for support to a circle of friends that includes a rich kid turned criminal and his troubled, self-destructive gay lover, as well as a bored, mischievous overachiever and her alluring slacker artist girlfriend. Illustrating a process of liberation from the strictures of gender through radical self-inquiry, Notes of a Crocodile is a poignant masterpiece of social defiance by a singular voice in contemporary Chinese literature.

A witty Nature Storybook about crocodiles, with words by award-winning author Martin Jenkins and playful pictures by Satoshi Kitamura. The main thing about crocodiles is they¿re really scary ¿ or at least the big ones are. They¿ve got an awful lot of teeth and they¿re not at all fussy about what they eat, as long as it¿s got a bit of meat on it. When it comes to hunting down their dinner, they¿re very determined and very cunning ... so better beware. But you might be surprised to hear that there's more to crocodiles than just their appetites: crocodiles make wonderful mothers! This is a fascinating, rounded look at crocodiles, with Martin's wry text brought to life by Satoshi's lively watercolour paintings. The back matter includes notes on species, an index and a bibliography.
