by Xingjian, Gao

E-book extras: "No -isms": A Conversation with Gao Xingjian; "Translating Gao: Mabel Lee on Gao Xingjian."One Man's Bible is the second novel by Nobel Prize-winning author Gao Xingjian to appear in English. Following on the heels of his highly praised Soul Mountain (also published by PerfectBound), this later work is as candid as the first, and written with the same grace and beauty.
