Dundurn Press in Toronto Canada snapped up World English rights to Xue Yiwei’s HILARY, MIWA & I.
Beside the frozen lake on the top of the Royal Mountain in a deep Montreal winter, Hilary, a Canadian woman, Miwa, a Japanese woman, and “I”, a Chinese man come across each other. A triangle, rooted in Chinese history and international conflict is formed and it elaborates on the globalization of the past decades that has not only changed the way of human life, but also humanity itself.
Yiwei has been hailed as “a maverick in contemporary Chinese literature” by Ha Jin, winner of the National Book Award and the author of four novels, five collections of short stories, where two collections have been translated into English as well as his novel DR. BETHUNE’S CHILDREN – banned in China. His short story collection SHENZHENERS was dubbed The Dubliners of modern China. He has lived in Montreal since 2002.
Founded in 1974, Dundurn Press is one of the largest Canadian-owned book publishing companies of adult and children’s fiction and non-fiction.
