Respondents were asked about their monograph publishing activities, sales, distribution, and about the future direction of their programmes. The report offers independent analysis of publisher information that may be helpful in informing the debate among stakeholders as to the future of the publication of long-form research in the arts, humanities and social sciences.

Running through Beijing
Xu Zechen Interviewed by Angus Phillips
Oxford Literary Festival event

Zechen lives in Beijing and works as editor at China’s most important literary magazine, People’s Literature. His work is not the sort of political literature that many might equate with China. Instead, Zechen’s novels chronicle life in China’s big cities. Running Through Beijing is one of his best-known novels and has been translated into English. It deals with the harsh realities lived by the millions of city-dwellers struggling to get by in the grey economy. The translation by Eric Abrahamsen was shortlisted for a National Translation Award in the USA.
