Description:
New York: Harper Collins, 2000. First edition in English of the author's magnum opus, which led to him winning the Nobel Prize in literature in 2000. Octavo, original half cloth. Boldly signed by Gao Xingjian on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Translated by Mabel Lee. In 1983, Chinese playwright, critic, fiction writer, and painter Gao Xingjian was diagnosed with lung cancer and faced imminent death.But six weeks later, a second examination revealed there was no cancer—he had won "a second reprieve from death." Faced with a repressive cultural environment and the threat of a spell in a prison farm, Gao fled Beijing and began a journey of 15,000 kilometers into the remote mountains and ancient forests of Sichuan in southwest China. The result of this epic voyage of discovery is Soul Mountain.
