Feature • Shen Congwen
Shen Congwen was one of the most influential writers in China’s modern history. His novel Border Town, originally published in 1934 and recently rereleased by HarperCollins, was banned under Mao’s regime, only to become an inspiration to a new generation of Chinese writers in the late twentieth century.
