And Other Stories Chinese reading group
By Jiang Chenxin, published
The And Other Stories Chinese reading group is up and running!
We're reading some of the best new literary writing published in Chinese, with the aim of identifying books that And Other Stories might consider publishing in English. We'll be reading three titles in June, July and August, and have already chosen our first two books: a selection of short novellas by Han Dong about a cat, a ferry and an execution, and a bestselling debut novel by Taiwanese playwright Chi Wei-Jan.
These should spark some great discussions -- there'll be an opportunity to comment online, with meetings planned in London, Beijing, and Shanghai. Click here for more details about joining us.
