I've never heard of him before, but since he got a Nobel prize, he must be anti Chinese regime oriented, otherwise a joke of a Nobel committee would never give it to him.

China’s Mo Yan wins Nobel literature prize

By Jamil Anderlini in Beijing and Lorien Kite in London

Mo Yan, the Chinese writer, has won the 2012 Nobel Prize in Literature. The Swedish Academy praised his works for their “hallucinogenic realism”, which “merges folk tales, history and the contemporary”.

The choice of Mr Mo, the first Chinese citizen to win any Nobel Prize other than the peace prize, will be controversial in his home country.

When rumours first began to circulate this week that he was a frontrunner many Chinese took to their microblogs to ridicule the suggestion because of Mr Mo’s staunch support for the country’s authoritarian regime.

Mr Mo is a Communist party member and former soldier in the People’s Liberation Army. As vice-chairman of the government’s China Writers Association he holds a semi-official role in the Chinese political system.

He has come in for strident criticism for his refusal to acknowledge or discuss the award of the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize to imprisoned Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo and for his public boycott of the 2010 Frankfurt book fair because of the presence of Chinese dissident writers.

He has also been attacked for organising fellow writers to commemorate and praise cultural policies launched by former dictator Mao Zedong in the mid-1940s that were later used to purge countless intellectuals.

Mr Mo is the 105th winner of the SKr8m ($1.2m) prize, which was created in the will of the scientist Alfred Nobel and first awarded in 1901.

Yeah I assumed the same that he must be a dissident. Good to see the Nobel committee appreciate anyone's literature regardless of political affiliation.

Ireland has 4 wins but James Joyce never got one I can't stand Seamus Heaney's stuff and he got one.
