Hong Kong: Chinese writer Bi Feiyu's family drama 'Three Sisters' has been named the winner of the 2010 Man Asian Literary Prize.
Organizers said in a statement Friday their three jurors praised the novel as "a moving exploration of Chinese family and village life during the Cultural Revolution that moves seamlessly between the epic and the intimate." The Cultural Revolution refers to the 1966-1976 ultraleftist Chinese political movement.
Bi is a well-known screenwriter who adapted his own novel for director Zhang Yimou's 1995 drama "Shanghai Triad."
Bi receives a $ 30,000 cash prize while the English translators for "Three Sisters," Howard Goldblatt and Sylvia Lin, share $ 5,000.
