A living legend and visionary of modern Chinese culture, Kenneth Hsien-yung Pai (白先勇), Emeritus Professor of University of California Santa Barbara, is an internationally acclaimed author generally considered among the greatest living stylists of Chinese fiction and prose. His works push bold modernist perspectives while exploring life in mid-20th century Taipei, China, and the United States. His publications include the collections of short stories Lonely Seventeen, Taipei People, and The New Yorker; the collection of prose writing Suddenly the Past; and the novel Crystal Boys. A higher proportion of Pai’s works have been turned into films, TV shows, and stage plays than almost any other contemporary Taiwanese writer. In recent years he has devoted his passion and energy to promote Chinese kunqu opera to the world. He is the general producer and artistic director of Peony Pavilion, which has toured China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the U.S.Buy tickets/get more info now
