Ba Jin’s Former Residence information
Probably for literary buffs only, this French Concession house is where the acclaimed author Ba Jin (1904–2005) lived from 1955 to the mid-90s. Ba was the author of dozens of novels and short stories (the most famous of which is Family ), many of which were published during the peak of his career in the 1930s. His house today contains a collection of old photos, books and manuscripts. Like many intellectuals, he was persecuted mercilessly during the Cultural Revolution, during which time his wife died after being denied medical treatment. Passport may be needed for entry.
