NTA Longlist: The Last Lover by Can Xue translated by Annelise F. Wasmoen

The Last Lover by Can Xue, translated from the Chinese by Annelise F. Wasmoen (Yale University Press)

Xue-Last LoverAnnelise Finegan Wasmoen expertly channels Can Xue’s exquisite prose, philosophical musings, and interconnected characters’ voices in her award-winning translation (Best Translated Book Award 2015). This haunting, convoluted narrative meanders between what has conventionally been considered binary opposites: East and West, the living and the dead, the self and the other.
