Local writer’s English novel published on US website

更新时间:2016-10-20 来源:深圳日报

A BILINGUAL writer in Shenzhen has published an English novel on the website of the U.S. literary magazine Brilliant Flash Fiction (BFF).

“The Shaking Heaven,” by Huang Guosheng, a 47-year-old businessman from Maoming in western Guangdong, tells the story of a son’s love for his mother. The English novel recently appeared on the website, BFF, alongside many novels penned by native English writers.

In the novel, the son, Zhou Haonan, preserves his mother’s corpse in a refrigerated glass box and places it in the hall of their ancestral home after fighting for a long time against strong opposition from all his local villagers. Whenever he returns to his hometown in western Guangdong from Shenzhen, he sees his mother there. Many years pass, Zhou dies, and his family members along with the villagers bury him and his mother together in a tomb on a nearby hillside.

Huang is a member of the Guangdong Provincial Association of Writers and the Translators Association of China. His Chinese novel “Shenzhen Dream” won fourth place in the China Novel Contest organized by Tianya.cn in 2013 and was one of Shenzhen’s three entries in the ninth Mao Dun Literary Prize in 2015.

The BFF website has more than 100 authors from many countries including the U.S., Canada, Britain and Germany. Huang is the only author from China. He and another writer from India are the only two Asian authors for the website.

Involved in international trade for more than 20 years, Huang exports IT and computer-related products to Russia, the U.S., Europe and other regions. “I drew inspiration from the people I have been acquainted with over more than 20 years in foreign trade.”

Now, Huang has bigger plans for his writing career. He said he has been contacting foreign publishing houses to publish his English version of “Shenzhen Dream.” “I have an even more ambitious goal. I will make endeavors for the novel to win the Man Booker Prize,” he told the Shenzhen Daily.

Huang won a writing competition held by the Shenzhen Daily in 2000, and from time to time he writes for the newspaper’s Yes! Teen section.

:深圳本土作家英文小说发美国网站

深圳双语作家在美国文学杂志Brilliant Flash Fiction (BFF)网站发表英文小说。

《惊天》系由来自粤西茂名的黄国晟所作,描写了为儿对母深爱的故事。该英文小说近日发于BFF,一同发表的其它小说大多为国外本土英文作家所写。

在小说中,周昊南的母亲不幸去世后,作为儿子的周昊南打算用冷藏玻璃匣子保存他母亲的尸体,然后摆放在祖屋的厅堂,但遭到村民强烈反对,几经抗争,他才遂愿。所以,此后每当他从深圳返回粤西老家时,他都能见到他母亲的“身影”。多年后周昊南去世时,他家里人和村民将他和他母亲一起,葬于附近山坡的同一处墓冢中,于是,母子俩生生世世都永不分离……

黄国晟系广东省作协、中国译协会员,其长篇小说《深圳梦》在2013年曾获天涯社区全国长篇小说大赛“盲评”第四名,是2015年深圳三部参评第九届茅盾文学奖的作品之一。

BFF网站拥有100多名来自美、加、英、德等国的作家,里面仅黄国晟一人来自中国。他与另一印度作家是网站中仅存的两名亚洲籍英文作家。

在20多年的国际贸易中,黄国晟向美国、俄罗斯、欧洲和其它地区出口IT及电脑相关产品。
黄国晟现有更大计划,他正在联系海外的出版社,准备出版由其原创的长篇小说《深圳梦》英文版。他告诉记者,他有更宏伟的目标,如果小说能在英国出版,并得到相关机构推介的话,可冲击“曼·布克奖”。

黄国晟曾在2000年获得由本报举办的全国英语写作奖,他不时在本报“Yes! Teen”专栏发表英文文学作品。
