EU-China-litfest 12: Identity, Memory and History on the Page

Gábor T. Szántó (Hungary), Deng Yiguang (China)

Sunday, November 22. 5 pm Beijing Time


Writers often explore convoluted questions of identity, tap into vaults of memory, and assess history from multiple vantage points as they refine research and develop fictional worlds. To discuss how they construct their own fictional realms, we are joined today by Gábor T. Szántó from Hungary and Deng Yiguang from China. Gábor T. Szántó is a novelist, essayist, screenplay writer and editor-in-chief of the Hungarian Jewish monthly Szombat. One of his short stories (1945, Homecoming) has been developed into a feature film entitled 1945 which won 20 awards across the world and has been distributed in 40 countries (available in China on Beijing eFida). Deng Yiguang, of Mongolian ethnicity, has published 10 novels. He has been widely translated and won the first Lu Xun Literature Award, among others.
