In 1993, translator Ronald Janssen, who translated Dialogues in Paradise and Old Floating Clouds: Two Novellas with Jian Zhang, visited Can Xue in Changsha where she guided him through the location that served as the model for Yellow Mud Street. The photos were recently found by Professor Janssen and generously donated to the Contemporary Chinese Writers Project.
