Gao Xingjian Biography
Gao Xingjian (高行健; pinyin: Gāo Xíngjiàn, is a Chinese emigré novelist, dramatist and critic, who won the 2000 Nobel Prize in Literature. He is also a noted translator, stage director and painter. Born on January 4, 1940 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 cricism of his novel Soul Mountain, called him an "awful writer", and 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.
