Murong Xuecun

Murong Xuecun is a leading independent writer living in China. He won the 2010 People’s Literature Prize for his most recent book The Missing Ingredient but was not allowed to deliver a speech at the ceremony because he intended to criticise the censorship of Chinese writers.

From a debut novel that prompted authorities to convene a conference solely to critique it, to his more recent work as an investigative journalist, Xuecun discusses the challenges that face an ‘independent’ writer in modern China.

Chaired by Jenny Niven.
