On Tuesday, Fan Hui, a local official, paid a visit to Mr Mo’s father to ask him to renovate the family home. “Your son is no longer your son, and the house is no longer your house,” urged Mr Fan, according to the Beijing News, explaining that the author was now the pride of China. “It does not really matter if you agree or not,” he added. Mr Fan has earmarked the family home as the main attraction of the “Mo Yan Culture Experience Zone”, but also has plans to create a theme park based on Mr Mo’s 1987 work, Red Sorghum.

i'm the leftist liberal you've been warned about - the one who genuinely supports the expansion of the welfare state. i love politics and data and graffiti and street art and am far too lazy to use my shift key. if you need to reach me, you can email to abbyjean at the google email service.
