Book Reviews

Welcome to the Reading Chinese Book Review Network, a collaboration between Writing Chinese and our partners at Penguin China and Balestier Press. Reviewers who join the network receive a copy of selected titles, and you can read their reviews by clicking on the images below.

If you are interested in applying to join this network as a reviewer, click here for the application form. And to get you started with writing reviews of translated fiction, you can read some tips from leading translator Nicky Harman on our blog here.

If you are a publisher interested in partnering us in this part of the project, please contact us at writingchinese@leeds.ac.uk for more details! And if you are a school interested in setting up a school bookclub, please see our Schools page for more details, and to read reviews of books for young people.
