By Kyodo News 22 July 2020
WUHAN, China—A book that recounts life in the central Chinese city of Wuhan while under a strict coronavirus lockdown has been effectively banned in China, its author said in a recent written interview with Kyodo News.
Chinese critics have been trying to thwart publication of the book titled “Wuhan Diary,” whose English version has received international recognition, although the country’s authorities have not officially prohibited it, said the 65-year-old local novelist known as Fang Fang.
