EU-China-litfest 27: Complex Relations: People and Peoples, Past and Present  

Daan Heerma van Voss (The Netherlands), Liang Hong (China)

Sunday, December 6. 7 pm Beijing Time

Convoluted relationships between people, as individuals and groups, and between contemporary times and times long past, are fundamental elements of our world. Authors of fiction and non-fiction alike dwell upon these relationships and, directly or obliquely, contemplate their ramifications in their writing. Today we are joined by two esteemed writers of both fiction and non-fiction who have won a host of awards for their insightful work. Daan Heerma van Voss is a novelist and historian from the Netherlands who has often been hailed as one of the front runners of his generation in Europe. His book The Last War was published in China by Flower City Press. Liang Hong, originally from Henan province, is a scholar, writer and professor at Renmin University of China. She has written non-fiction books on literature and life in rural China, as well as two novels, most recently The Four Forms (2020). Daan Heerma van Voss and Liang Hong will discuss their own writing and research processes and how they absorb complex relations and events into their narratives.
