A Chinese Life (French: Une vie chinoise) is a French graphic novel co-written by Li Kunwu (李昆武) and Philippe Ôtié and illustrated by Li Kunwu. Edward Gauvin translated the book into English. The book describes Li Kunwu's life during the Cultural Revolution. Kana published the French version, and SelfMadeHero published the English translation.

Li Kunwu (born 1955), an artist, received a proposal to make a graphic novel about his life in 2005. The co-writer, Ôtié, is a diplomat. It was first published in France. In 2009 serialization began; it ended in 2011.

Reception

James Smart of The Guardian wrote that "This ambitious graphic novel pulls you to the chest of the world's latest superpower, shows you something of what it has gained and lost, and lets you go, 60 years later, drained and intrigued and feeling as though you know China's great, tangled present a little bit better."
