"Hugely satisfying, a potent combination of pearls and swine." - Daily Telegraph

"A bold social satire that never loses its sense of fun, DEAD PIGS finally lets us confirm what BIRDS OF PREY already suggested: Cathy Yan has a sharp eye and a fearless voice - we're lucky to have her." - Empire

"Joltingly funny." - Pajiba

The fates of an unlucky pig farmer, a feisty home-owner defending her property, a lovestruck busboy, a disenchanted rich girl, and an American expat pursuing the Chinese Dream converge and collide as thousands of dead pigs are found floating down the Huangpu River, towards a modernizing Shanghai in Cathy Yan's (BIRDS OF PREY) debut future.
