China's Banned Books

Great interview on BBC World Service "Fifth Floor"

From the Beeb: "Chan Koon Chung is a Chinese author who writes about ethnicity, sex, and other provocative issues in China. His latest novel has been banned, although like other writers who delve into taboo subjects he remains free to live and continue writing from within China. The book is called The Unbearable Dreamworld of Champa the Driver, and to talk about its themes we've bring together Vincent Ni from BBC Chinese and Juliana Liu who is based in Hong Kong."

The section on China is from 31:15 to 40:20, and also mentions Murong Xuecun and Chen Xiwo. Nicky Harman is the translator of "The Unbearable Dreamworld...".
