Product description


Gilbert C. F. Fong and Mabel Lee both have established a solid record as English translators of Gao Xingjian, and this slim volume, presenting two plays in fluent translations, is yet another welcome addition to their earlier work introducing Gao to Western audiences.

About the Author

Gao Xingjian, in 2000 the first Chinese recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature, is best known for his novels and plays. He is also a noted critic, painter, and translator.

Gilbert C. F. Fong is the provost and dean of the School of Translation, Hang Seng Management College, Hong Kong.

Mabel Lee is an adjunct professor at the School of Languages and Cultures, University of Sydney.
