Meet the Author

Renowned for his absurdist re-visioning of the world and experimentation with the techniques of humour in his satirical writings. Lao She (pen-name of Shu Qingchun, also named Sheyu, 1899-1966) is one of the few writers who has written on almost all of the major events in modern China. To say that his works are mirrors of modern Chinese sociocultural changes is no exaggeration. His works, fictional and dramatic, are not simply historical writings; but the author's reflections upon history, as well as the voices of the common people trapped in the social turmoil in modern China.
