The Legend of Jin Yong 金庸

  • China Exchange 32a Gerrard Street London, England, W1D 6JA United Kingdom (map)

Known as China's Tolkien, Jin Yong 金庸 is a house-hold name throughout East Asia, with his fantasy epics selling over 300 million copies. Yet his works have remained a mystery in the West. Now a new English translation of the first volume of his Legends of the Condor Heroes is opening up the legend for Western readers. Meet young translator Anna Holmwood to hear how she translated the untranslatable in this event celebrating Jin Yong's life and works at China Exchange on 17 March.
