Study abroad is a perfect opportunity to translate oneself in a foreign country, in a strange language, in unfamiliar roosts.

Yu Hua, considered by many to be China’s greatest living author, begins his remarks with a joke. Brothers, a novel he calls his most important, has received critical acclaim abroad but encountered mixed reviews at home.
