I Live in the Slums selected for Booker prize long list

I Live in the Slums, a collection of stories by Can Xue, has been selected for the International Booker Prize long list (https://thebookerprizes.com/international-booker/2021).

The stories were translated by Karen Gernant and Chen Zeping and published by Yale University Press in 2020. This translating duo has worked on a number of stories by Can Xue, including the recent small format collection Purple Perilla (isolarii.com). They describe their work in an online interview at Three Percent, although only part of the interview is accessible.
