A bit of good publishing news: the Italian publishing house Sellerio recently announced the purchase of three excellent Chinese novels to publish in Italy:
- Concession (租界) by Xiao Bai (小白)
- Tui Na (推拿) by Bi Feiyu (毕飞宇)
- Running Through Zhongguancun (跑步穿过中关村) by Xu Zechen (徐则臣)
Excellent choices, and Paper Republic is pleased to have played a role, in a sort of back-room, smoke-wreathed, under-the-table kind of way.
