In this central work of queer Chinese literature, the story of a torrid love affair between wealthy businessman Handong and naive student Lan Yu is set against the political unrest of the 1980s. Bei Tong is the anonymous author of Beijing Comrades, and his true identity has been a subject of debate since the work was first published on a gay Chinese Web site in 1998 and quickly earned a devoted following. The book, excerpted here, is now translated into English for the first time by Scott E. Myers.
