Manchester Literature Festival is delighted to be co-hosting this special event with the Confucius Institute which promotes Chinese language and culture in the North West. Liu Hong was born and raised in China. Since coming to the UK in the 1980s she has published four books and her short stories have been read on Radio 4. Her novels focus on the emotional upheavals of ordinary Chinese people over the past forty years. Her latest novel, Wives of the East Wind, is an epic tale of friendships, love, and idealism betrayed. Xinran was born in Beijing and now lives in London. She is the author of the seminal book about Chinese women’s lives, The Good Women of China, the novel, Miss Chopsticks, and China Witness – a magnificent and groundbreaking work of oral history giving voice to a forgotten generation.
