Zhu Yue

Zhu Yue was born in Beijing, in 1977. He practiced as a lawyer before becoming an editor. As Paper Republic puts it, “China is not short of writers who swear fealty to Borges, but Zhu Yue is one of the few whose work has philosophical weight to substantiate the metafictional trimmings.” To date, Zhu has published four short-story collections: The Blindfolded Traveler (2006), Masters of Sleep (2010), Chaos of Fiction (2015), and Running Wild (2021).
