I've recently finished this (in English - the edition is beautifully set and the translation is excellent). All round a very interesting book. He explains why critics and readers often think of his books as easy to read, which is something I've seen people on here often comment on.

I think the first half, with the autobiographical stories, is much better than the second half with the social commentary. I liked the chapter on "人民" the best. To me, it's the most deeply felt.

Here is an interview with Yu Hua where he talks about the genesis of the book.
