Waugh in China

Yesterday’s notice on new publications of Waugh’s books in Japanese translations made your correspondent wonder whether Waugh may be enjoying similar availability in other Asian languages. Chinese is easy enough to check because there is an Amazon.cn site selling books. From that, the following list of Waugh translations currently available in Chinese was assembled (listed in order of date of publication) :

A Little Learning, Shanghai Translation Publishing House (STPH), 1 January 2013

Decline and Fall, STPH, 1 April 2013

Black Mischief, STPH, 1 December 2013

Vile Bodies, STPH, 1 January 2014

The Loved One, STPH, 1 June 2014

A Handful of Dust, Capital Normal University Press, 1 April 2015

The books published by STPH can be seen here on Amazon.cn. The identity of the translator is usually revealed somewhere in the listing. You will need to copy texts into Google Translate for English versions of the descriptive materials. Some of these books may be available on Amazon.com.

There is at least one book translated into Korean: A Handful of Dust, Minumsa Publishing Group, 10 April 2016. That is available from Amazon.com.
