At the London Book Fair, which runs from March 12-14 this year, Lu Min will introduce her novel The Golden River, according to Wang Yuqiang, who works with the book's Chinese-language publisher Yilin Press.

Wang said the March 13 event will feature the writer, along with her two translators, Nicky Harman and Jack Hargreaves, as well as British publishers and book critics.

"We are hoping to find a suitable English publisher through the event," Wang said.

Born in 1973 in Jiangsu province, Lu is deemed one of the representatives of Chinese writers born in the 1970s. She has won prizes like the Lu Xun Literature Award, and had her work translated. The Golden River is a realistic story that chronicles an entrepreneur's family stories over the course of 40 years as China undergoes the dramatic social and economic progress that has shaped it since the 1980s.

Lu said she prepared decades for the novel, spent seven years researching it, and two more years writing it. Her goal was to "record the legacies of Chinese entrepreneurs".

Harman is a leading translator of Chinese literature into English. Her translations include books by Jia Pingwa and Han Dong.
