Impressive young Chinese novelist

13 03 2009

This 26-year-old novelist from China, HanHan, is very successful in China – people buy his novels and his blog received over 100 million visitors in 2007, with thousands of comments to his posts. He has always said what he wants to, but with the success of his novels he is now economically independent, and can therefore do whatever he wants – he doesn’t need the government for anything!

He represents the new generation of Chinese people – and let’s hope he keeps it up!


Picture from

An article about the fire in the CCTV building in Beijing, and about HanHan’s blog post about the fire and the company involved – one of the new buildings built for the 2008 Olympic games.


Here you can read HanHan’s blog entry about that fire:
(his real blog (both the Sina and the bullogg-blog) is in Chinese, so this is a translation)

“On Saturday, novelist Han Han was inspired by the death of Huang Ju to muse about the practice of lowering flags to half-mast for national tragedies.”
