Nobel Winner Mo Yan 莫言

Chinese writer Mo Yan 莫言, winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Literature, set much of his fiction in his home province Shandong, China. His books touch on many of contemporary China’s most sensitive themes, including the Cultural Revolution and the country's strict family-planning policies. The award citation states that "Mo Yan has created a world reminiscent in its complexity of those in the writings of William Faulkner and Gabriel García Márquez, at the same time finding a departure point in old Chinese literature and in oral tradition." CPL has many of his works in Chinese, a couple in English translations, as well as a DVD of his Red Sorghum.
