Shanghai Translation Launches 5 Novels by Nobel Laureate Abdulrazak Gurnah

Shanghai Translation Publishing (上海译文出版社) has begun marketing its Chinese renditions of five novels by Nobel Laureate Abdulrazak Gurnah: 《天堂》(Paradise),《来世》(After Lives),《赞美沉默》(Admiring Silence),《最后的礼物》(The Last Gift) and《海边》(By the Sea). They will eventually be available in e-book format as well.

As noted in Tales of Exile and Migration, in 2021 this publisher acquired the rights to publish translations — in the PRC’s simplified Chinese script — of Gurnah’s ten novels that appeared in English between 1987 and 2020. The remaining five will appear in 2023: Memory of DeparturePilgrims WayDottie, and Desertion.
