Hoping for more famous Chinese authors

19 Jul

Chinese authors aren’t too well-known* or sell too many books worldwide, and efforts are underway to change that with book publishing companies putting more effort in searching for more Chinese writers to translate. There’s nothing too momentous mentioned in the piece though so I won’t get my hopes up too much, but it’s still good to see a little more effort by publishers.

*There are exceptions like Mo Yan, Yu Hua, Ha Jin and Gao Xingjian, though the latter two have been based abroad for a long time and Ha only writers in English now.
