I was browsing Amazon's bestsellers list in the China category, and I noticed EVERY single one of them from 1-100 is written by a westerner:
#2 Country Driving by Peter Hessler
#4 To a Mountain in Tibet by Colin Thubron
#20 The Foremost Good Fortune by Susan Conley
#24 Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven by Susan Jane Gilman
#39 Ghost Train to the Eastern Star by Paul Theroux
#47 CHINA: Portrait of a People by Tom Carter
Is this some kind of conspiracy by western publishers to keep Chinese authors off the shelves, or is it that foreigners just know China better than the Chinese?
Also, if possible, can you please suggest some good CHINESE authors?
