For the Sydney Writer's Festival in 2018, a conversation with Chinese-Canadian writer Xue Yiwei, about his book 'Shenzheners':
A maverick of contemporary Chinese literature, Xue Yiwei is the author of some 18 acclaimed books. His short-story collection Shenzheners takes readers beneath the surface of “socialism with Chinese characteristics” in the megalopolis Shenzhen. Inspired by James Joyce’s Dubliners, it was named one of the most influential Chinese books of the year following its release. Hear the Montreal-based author in conversation with Luise Guest about a collection that reveals the hopes and dreams of ordinary people grappling with the impact of globalisation.
