Book: Wei Hui – Shanghai Baby


Shanghai Baby

Very stunning insight into contemporary China!
In Zhou Wei Hui’’s erotic tale, Coco converts from a sex-crazed hedonist to a blessed-out Buddhist, thanks to her crush on Muju, a Japanese-Italian television executive who happens to be a terrific lover.
More than 40.000 copies of Shanghai Baby were burned publicly, her publisher closed, and Wei Hui was labeled “a whore to western culture” by critics. The Chinese Government even made it impossible to search for her name on the internet.
I am not quite sure if it is more the hype around that it makes it so interesting or if it is the book itself. However it is absolutely worth to have look inside.

    I’m pretty sure Muju is in the second bood, Marrying Buddha, not Shanghai Baby as she falls for Tian Tian in this book.
