Sounds of the River : A Memoir of China, Paperback

Sounds of the River : A Memoir of China Paperback


In this second volume of memoir, following his acclaimed "Colours of the Mountain", Chen arrives in Beijing, armed with a dogged determination to learn English and familiarise himself with 'all things Western', he must compete with every other student to win a chance to study in the US - a chance that rests in the shrewd and corrupt hands of the all - powerful professors.

In this remarkable book - by turns poetic, ribald, hilarious, and heartbreaking - Chen retains his indomitable spirit, but will he be any closer to attaining his goal?
