Chasing dreams: the common man in China today

Oct 13, 2016, 02:55 PM

Alec Ash and Rob Schmitz, two writers with books recently published on China, discussed the dreams of ordinary Chinese people at a literature event held at Asia House. In 'Street of Eternal Happiness: Big City Dreams Along a Shanghai Road', Rob Schmitz followed a series of people who live on the same street as he does in Shanghai. In Alec Ash’s book 'Wish Lanterns: Young Lives in New China' he coveres young Chinese born between 1985 and 1990. #china #modernchina #xijinping #literatureonchina #asianliterature #asiahouse
