About the author:

Yang Lian (楊煉 Yáng Liàn) is a Chinese poet  associated with the Misty Poets and also with the Searching for Roots school. He was born in Bern, Switzerland in 1955 and raised in Beijing. His education was interrupted by the outbreak of the Cultural Revolution after 1966. In 1974 he was sent to Changping county near Beijing to undergo 're-education through labor'. In 1977, after the Revolution had ended, Yang returned to Beijing where he worked with the state broadcasting service.
