NYT > Yu Hua

Yu Hua became a contributing opinion writer for The International New York Times in the fall of 2013.  Mr. Yu was born in 1960 in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China. When he was 3, his family moved to the town of Wuyuanzhen, about 60 miles away. In 1978, after completing his primary and secondary education, Mr. Yu became a dentist. He plied this trade for five years but never liked the job, for it involved gazing every day into other people’s mouths – the world’s least scenic spots. In 1983 he began writing stories, and in time became an author and acquired the freedom to sleep late —   a job he likes. Mr. Yu is the author of five novels — “Cries in the Drizzle,” “To Live,” “Chronicle of a Blood Merchant,” “Brothers” and, most recently, “The Seventh Day” — as well as six collection of stories and five collections of essays, including “China in Ten Words.” His works have been translated into more than 20 languages. He has been awarded Italy’s Premio Grinzane Cavour (1998), France’s Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (2004), the Special Book Award of China (2005) and France’s Prix Courrier International (2008). Mr. Yu lives in Beijing.
