About the Author
Jin Yong (pen name of Louis Cha) was a true phenomenon in the Chinese-speaking world. Born in Mainland China, he spent most of his life writing novels and editing newspapers in Hong Kong. His enormously popular martial arts novels have become modern classics and remain a must-read for readers looking for danger and adventure. Gigi Chang translates from Chinese into English. Her translations include classical Chinese dramas for the Royal Shakespeare Company and contemporary Chinese plays for London's Royal Court Theatre, Hong Kong Arts Festival and Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre. Shelly Bryant divides her year between Shanghai and Singapore, working as a writer, researcher, and translator. Her translation of Sheng Keyi's Northern Girls was long-listed for the Man Asian Literary Prize in 2012.
