Can you tell me a little bit about your PhD research?

It was on modern Chinese literature, so I had done a degree in Chinese and German and liked literature and spent a year after I'd finished my degree on a language scholarship in Taiwan where I'd done a lot of reading of fiction and so that's what I chose for my topic.

It was gender studies, a sort of sociological analysis of literature. So the main interest really was that I liked reading the fiction so I thought I might like writing about it too.
