Cheating collects the early writings of contemporary Chinese poet YIN Lichuan, including three erotic poems and her novella Cheating. A founding member of the Lower Body Poets, YIN’s writing focuses on harrowing psychological intrigue and the devastation of desire, her verse as uninhibited as her prose. This is the first time these works have ever been translated into English.
