  • Han Han Digest :: China's #1 Blogger Translated
    Number 2 in Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people of 2010, high school drop-out, professional writer and race car driver Han Han is China’s modern-day Mark Twain, rattling his nation’s conscience, and ridiculing its political culture through satire and prose. His blog posts typically attract between 1 and 2 million views each, making him not only the most widely read blogger in China, but also in the world. His writings are a window into modern Chinese society and the forces forging the contemporary identity of the world’s second largest economy, defying the stereotype of China’s sterile media environment often portrayed in the West.
