New Chinese Writing

A YiShaung Xuetao thumbnailAbrahamson, Eric

A Yi, Shuang Xuetao; moderated by Eric Abrahamsen

A Yi and Shuang Xuetao are two accomplished authors who belong to an emerging generation of Chinese writers who have taken non-mainstream routes to success. A Yi, formerly the editor-in-chief of the edgy literary magazine Chutzpah, has been published in Granta and The Guardian, and has been called “one of the most gifted Chinese authors in recent times” (by Nobel-nominated poet Bei Dao). Shuang Xuetao’s fiction has yet to be translated, but it’s only a matter of time; he’s won prizes at multiple competitions, including first prize at the 14th Taipei Literature Awards. This talk will be moderated by Eric Abrahamsen, editor at Pathlight, China’s premier English-language literary journal of translated Chinese works of short fiction and poetry.

This event will be in Chinese with English interpretation.
