“In 1983 the Chinese news cycle was dominated by the erratic movements of two modern-day outlaws who were on the run through China: two working-class brothers called Wang Zongwei and Wang Zongfang. They had started by robbing a store, but as they fled, they went on a killing spree, constantly eluding the police. There were ‘Wanted’ posters of the brothers pasted up on every major street in every town in the country.” —Xiaolu Guo
