A Yi (real name Ai Guozhu) is “one of the most gifted Chinese authors in recent times,” according to Nobel-nominated poet Bei Dao. His star has been rising in the global literary scene as well: he’s been published in Granta and The Guardian, and A Perfect Crime, his first novel translated into English, was published in June 2015.
A Perfect Crime is a thrilling and stylish novel about a motiveless murder that echoes Kafka’s absurdism, Camus’nihilism and Dostoyevsky’s depravity.
A Yi is a confirmed author for 2016 Bookworm Literary Festival.
Reed his book, discuss it during The Book Club Meeting and meet the author when he comes to Beijing this March.
