    Abstract

    Sterk translates the literary work "Dr. Bethune's children" 《白求恩的孩子們》, written by Xue Yiwei (薛憶溈). Xue Yiwei's life has been marked by that of the legendary Montréal surgeon Norman Bethune, who died in China in the cause of Communism. Xue Yiwei was inspired by Dr. Bethune's example during the Cultural Revolution. He went to the lengths of moving to Montréal, where he has lived for sixteen years as a writer acclaimed in China and—until now— unknown in Canada. This subversive novel is the story that only he could write. It focuses on individual lives marked by some of the traumatic events of recent decades that have been veiled by official secrecy. In showing us the effects of the distress and repression that have marked his whole generation, Xue Yiwei unveils the human heart.
