Zhang Wei warns against "unworthy" translations
Zhang Wei (main) has warned he will withhold publishing of his latest novel From the Juvenile to the Youth in foreign languages if translations are "unworthy."
Acclaimed author Zhang Wei launched the Chinese edition of his autobiographical novel From the Juvenile to the Youth (2012) on Monday ahead of the release of the novel's foreign language versions. Over the next two years, 26 novels by Zhang - who won the 2011 Mao Dun Literature Prize for his decade-long, 10-volume work On the Plateau - are expected to be published in several languages, marking another milestone in Chinese literature's foray overseas.
The novels will be published by Publish On Demand Global (PODG), an American private publishing house.
