Qiu Xiaolong Author Biography
Qiu Xiaolong was born and raised in Shanghai. He managed to avoid the worst of Mao Zedong's Cultural Revolution
by falling ill with bronchitis at the age of 16, so he was able to stay in the
city, while his peers left to be "re-educated" in the countryside. One day
while sitting on a bench in Shanghai's Bund he noticed some people studying
an English book, that was the start of an interest that grew into an
academic specialty in modernist poetry.
