Member article: CONFESSIONS MADE IN CHINA

Remembering Lao She

Come August, half a century will have passed since the death of the great Chinese writer Lao She (老舍). Lao She committed suicide by drowning himself in Beijing’s Taiping Lake after suffering badly at the hands of self-styled young radicals during the long hot summer of 1966.
