We are delighted to host an evening with one of the key figures in contemporary Chinese literature to mark the publication of Shi Cheng: Short Stories from Urban China (Comma Press). Han Dong began writing in 1980, and has been a major player on the modern Chinese literary scene since the 1990s as a poet and editor of the magazine, Them. He is well-known as one of China’s most important avant-garde poets, and is becoming increasingly influential as an essayist, short story writer and novelist. In conversation with literary translator Nicky Harman.
Supported by the Confucius Institute, Manchester, and the British Council.
