It relates her conflict with Song Liwei, who was then considered the Big Brother of Chinese contemporary art, because of her attempts to prove that Lan Jun was not in any way connected to the planning of the shooting performance. It also highlights the drafting of her novel and her decision to contact her Australian friend to have it translated in English.
