Photo detail

In this April 10, 2012 photo, Chinese mystery writer Qiu Xiaolong speaks in his childhood home in downtown Shanghai, China. In China, the communist authorities still impose boundaries on all things creative, and an author must be careful how much of the recent past to insert into a work of fiction. That particularly applies to Qiu, a Shanghai native transplanted to St. Louis, Mo.
