中文原文以下有英文翻译

朋友们:

我原定44号去美国,为我即将在哈珀科林斯出版的英文 新书《上帝是红色的》,以及兰登出版的《吆尸人》做巡回宣传,不料在328号,警方再次下达禁令,我不能出国。

我原定计划是访问旧金山、芝加哥、波士顿、纽约、华盛顿等多个城市,还将在哈佛、耶鲁等多所大学演讲、朗读作品、音乐演出,并应邀参加纽约文学节,专场演 讲和演出,与世界各地的作家进行“当代文学与历史见证”的对话。现在所有这一切全部得取消。

澳洲也将推出我的新书,从美国去澳洲访问的计划,也得取消。

自去年我访问德国归来,就处于监控之下,警方多次找我喝茶,写作也屡屡被打断,直到这次,我又因为国家安全的原因,被禁止出国。

十几年来,我曾经16次争取出国权,1次成功,15次失败。

谢谢大家多年的关注。

廖亦武

Message from Chengdu writer Liao Yiwu, author of The Corpse Walker

April 1, 2011

Friends:

I originally planned to leave for the United States on April 4 in order to make a publicity tour for my book God is Red which will be published in English translation by Harper Collins and for my book The Corpse Walker which was published by Random House.

Unexpectedly, on March 28th, the police issued an order forbidding me to leave China.

I had originally planned to travel to San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, New York, Washington and other cities and to give lectures, readings and musical performances at Harvard, Yale and other universities as well as participate in the New York Literary Festival where I was to make a speech and perform, and to have a dialogue with writers from around the world on the theme “Contemporary Writer and Bearing Witness to History”. Now all this has been canceled.

My new book is also going to be published in Australia. My plan to travel from the United States to Australia has also been canceled.

Ever since my return from Germany last year, I have been closely monitored. The police have “invited me to drink tea” many times.  My writing has been repeatedly interrupted.

I have once again been forbidden to travel abroad for national security reasons.

Over the last ten or so years I have strived to get the right to travel abroad 16 times.  I succeeded once and failed 15 times.

Thank you all for your concern for me over the years.
