Gao Xingjian

From Academic Kids

Gao Xingjian (高行健, pinyin: Gāo Xngjin; born January 4, 1940), is a Chinese emigr novelist, dramatist and critic, who won the 2000 Nobel Prize in Literature. He is also a noted translator, stage director and painter. Born in Ganzhou, Jiangxi, China, he is now a French citizen. In 1992 he was awarded the Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government. Although the general position by the Chinese media and government towards Gao is silence, the Yangcheng Evening News, a state-run newspaper, in 2001, during a criticism of his novel Soul Mountain, called him an "awful writer", and said that the idea of him winning the Nobel Prize was "ludicrous". The Chinese government officially regards Gao as an exiled dissident, and all of his works are banned.
