Silver Hill Village, 2012. On the twentieth day of the seventh moon - the day after National Wiping Out Iliteracy Day - Kwok Yun is making her way across the rice fields on her Flying Pigeon bicycle. Her world is upturned when she sights a UFThing-a spinning plate in the sky - and hepls a Westerner in distress whom she discovers in the shadow of the alien craft.
It's not long before the village is crawling with men from the National security and Intelligence Agency armed with pointed questions. And when the Westerner that Kwok Yun saved repays her kindness with a large dollar cheque she becomes a local celebrity, albeit under  constant surveillance.
In a briliantly structured and darkly humorous narrative, Xiaolu Guo tells Kwok Yun's moving story via the interrogation files compiled by the visiting agents. We meet the bad-tempered inhabitants of Silver Hill including: Chief Chang, the local mayor, determined to Demolish the weak, demolish the rotten! ; the Butcher, reliving his days as a Parasite Eradication Hero during the Cultural Revolution ; and the foul-mouthed tea farmer, Rich and Strong, watching in horror as his land is overrun by the mayor's building initiative.
