OPEN BOOK CAPE TOWN

Sheng Keyi

Born in the 1970s in Hunan province, Sheng Keyi lived for a time in Shenyang, Guangdong province. Now living in Beijing, Sheng is one of the newer generations of writers who deal primarily with modern China (as opposed to rural themes). She tends to begin with female characters and themes, but is a ferocious experimenter with style and voice, and her works cover a wide range of emotional and social territory. Northern Girls, was longlisted for the 2012 Man Asian Literary Prize.
