Chinese writers under 30 are stepping into the limelight with the New Wave series released in June.

Bai Ye, a literary critic who has traced the post-1980 generation for more than 10 years, spoke at the book launch, praising the young writers’ works.

“I used to worry that they would never come of age,” he says. “I don’t have that worry anymore.”

The series consists of three novels. There Is Nothing Like a Cat looks at urban relationships from the eyes of a cat; Bian Wai talks about a young man’s aspirations to work in the bureaucratic system; and Qing Ci depicts a tormented and out-of-control love life.
