Jia Pingwa becomes most influential Chinese author overseas

On Friday's list, Amazon named Chinese author Jia Pingwa as the "most influential Chinese author overseas."

In August, the e-commerce giant published Happy Dreams, the English version of Jia's novel Gaoxing. The paper version and e-book were released simultaneously, enabling readers in more than 180 countries to have access to the novel.

Published in 2007, Happy Dreams depicts the bitter experience of Chinese migrant worker Liu Gaoxing who comes from Shaanxi province to seek a living in a city.
