Anni Baobei (Chinese author)
« on: March 03, 2017, 09:23:49 AM »
Anni Baobei - aka Annie Baby - aka Li Jie - writer of Ba Yue Wei Yang ("August is not over")

Did she ever get translated, or maybe write something in English?
There is little in history to support the proposition that China was indeed the centre of the Asian universe commanding deference among less civilised states around its periphery...

I think I was briefly introduced to her once (or she to me) at a cafe in Hangzhou about 10 years ago. The cafe's owner was our mutual friend.

It bothers me like a missed opportunity that people like this go unpublished in English (or at least so obscurely published as to not even be pirated  bibibibibi).

An informant told me yesterday when I asked who was An Ni Bao Bei that this was an author and at back when the informant was a student nearly every girl in her class would have one of her books. It also occurs to me now that I have heard of Anni Baobei before, and it was in a class discussing story where I asked if anyone had a favourite author. Anni Baobei was mentioned, and everyone in the class knew who was being mentioned. (And I pretty much ignored that report because (a) cutesy author name and (b) the class acted like liking this author was passe... freaking fashion, man.)

Anyway, would like to read.
