Xu Zechen interviewed by Angus Phillips

Running through Beijing

Xu Zechen Interviewed by Angus Phillips

Oxford Literary Festival event

The event is presented by the Confucius Institute and the Oxford International Centre for Publishing at Oxford Brookes University.

Taking Place: St Cross College

Rising star of Chinese literature Xu Zechen talks about his novels that portray the realities of life for many in modern China.

Zechen lives in Beijing and works as editor at China’s most important literary magazine, People’s Literature. His work is not the sort of political literature that many might equate with China. Instead, Zechen’s novels chronicle life in China’s big cities. Running Through Beijing is one of his best-known novels and has been translated into English. It deals with the harsh realities lived by the millions of city-dwellers struggling to get by in the grey economy. The translation by Eric Abrahamsen was shortlisted for a National Translation Award in the USA.
