Liao Yiwu

Liao Yiwu is one of the most prominent and outspoken writers in China today. He spent four torturous years in prison for writing the incendiary poem “Massacre.” For many years since, the Chinese government has considered his writings subversive because they expose the dark side of the socialist system, and all of his books are currently banned in China. Liao fled the country in July 2011, to escape arrest preceding the publication of his memoir in Germany.
