Liao Yiwu

Liao Yiwu is a Chinese author, reporter, musician, and poet. He is a critic of China's Communist regime, for which he has been imprisoned. His books were published in Taiwan and Hong Kong but are banned in mainland China; some have been translated into English, French and German.
 

"In these remote corners, I have discovered a center point, where East met West, and although there has been a collision of cultures, there is now a new Christian identity that is distinctly Chinese.
The circuitous mountain path in Yunnan province is red because over many years it has been soaked with blood."
