You Jin

Translated from Chinese by Shelly Bryant

Take a look inside

“For many years, I have made my living by the pen. In 2005, when my autobiography was published in Chinese, I gave it the title《文字就是生命》 or A Life in Words. These words encapsulate the beautiful connection between me and my lifelong devotion to the literary arts. Literature and I have transformed into a single entity, and I can feel Chinese characters bobbing along through my veins.” —You Jin
