Wang Xiaofang exposes world of Chinese bureaucracy

Bestselling author exposes shady world while readers buy his books to get insight into how to become government officials

Money. Power. Even sex, albeit offstage. Wang Xiaofang's novels capture it all – in the dog-eat-dog world of Chinese bureaucracy. Personal ambition, political intrigue and detailed renderings of the country's land management system fuse in the unlikely literary phenomenon known as "officialdom fiction".
