Chinese Nobel laureate releases new book
The book, titled “Grand Ceremony”, is his first to be published since he won the 2012 Nobel Prize, Xinhua news agency said. It was released at a national book fair.
Mo, speaking at a ceremony on China’s southern island of Hainan, said he wanted to give readers a “first-hand” glimpse into his greatest achievement, the report said.
“The new book also shows my great eagerness to return to my desk to write my next book,” he was quoted as saying.
The author, born Guan Moye, whose pen name means “not speak”, won the Nobel in October for what judges called his “hallucinatory realism”.
