About the Author

Yunte Huang is a Guggenheim Fellow and a professor of English at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is the author of Transpacific Imaginations and Charlie Chan, which won the 2011 Edgar Award and was a finalist for the 2010 National Book Critics Circle Award in Biography. Having come of age in China as a student in the time of Tiananmen, Huang now lives in Santa Barbara, California.


"Huang is previously the author of a witty and stylish book about Charlie Chan which drew on a variety of artforms - from doggerel verses to B-movies - to reflect on the representation of China in the West. The Big Red Book, which benefits from translations by a Who's Who of talent, is similarly wide-ranging. And while Huang's prose choices are relatively conventional, his selections of poems and sketches of their authors are engagingly idiosyncratic." -- The Times Literary Supplement
"[A] worthwhile anthology... that manages to combine the established canon with less-well-known selections... [Its] breadth and variety...will, one hopes, encourage new readers to explore more Chinese literature in full translations." -- The New York Times Book Review
