It feels like Chinese novels are being translated to English and published in the United States more and more in the past few years. Just a few months ago, three of the books from the NYTimes.com Book Update were novels written by Chinese authors in Mandarin and translated to English.
Is this just a result of the world’s increasing fascination with China? Or evidence of a China that is becoming less and less communist?
Any thoughts on why Chinese novels seem to be all the rage?
