Nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2001, Pa Chin (1904-2005) has long been one of the leading figures of twentieth-century Chinese Literature. He is best known for the influential trilogy Family, Spring, and Autumn. Cold Nights, twice adapted into films (Cantonese in 1955 and Mandarin in 1984), grapples with the emotional entanglement of Chinese intellectuals with the Japanese invasion of China as background. It has been widely hailed by critics as another masterpiece by Pa Chin.
