World Book Day: Piracy issues

Watch the full reports here on CCTV: http://www.cctvnews.cn/2014/04/23/world-book-day-are-chinese-reading-enough/

The recent death of Nobel laureate author Gabriel García Márquez has ironically proved a boon for reading among the public. The Colombian author’s work was popular in China and sales of his books have skyrocketed since his death.

One of the most unique aspects of the Chinese book market remains the role of piracy. Copyright and intellectual property issues have bedeviled authors in China for years and continue to take a toll on traditional bookstores. In Chongqing, 301 bookstores closed their doors between 2009 and 2012. 

Even the works of the venerable Márquez, were not spared.

"broken english"

—  when my mother struggles to spell a word in english
I want to break the entire language
into little pieces
so the edges of these letters
will stop cutting her

"My third grade teacher called my mother and said, ‘Ms. Cox, your son is going to end up in New Orleans in a dress if we don’t get him into therapy.’ And wouldn’t you know, just last week I spoke at Tulane University, and I wore a LOVELY green and black dress."
