Jean Portante was born in Luxembourg. He is of Italian origin and he lives in Paris. He has travelled widely and written more than forty books, novels, stories, plays, essays, translations and poetry, and has been translated into more than 20 different languages. Lu Min was born in Jiangsu province and as a young woman she worked several jobs in different places – including post office clerk, a secretary, a journalist, and a civil servant – before settling on a career as a writer. She has won many top awards for her short stories, novellas and novels, including the Lu Xun Literary Award, and has been widely translated internationally (and her novel Undeliverable Feelings has recently been signed to Simon and Schuster). Join these two leading writers as they discuss their writing, their career trajectories and how different places and experiences have enriched them as observers and documenters of the world around them.
