Jeff Wasserstrom on Lijia Zhang's Memoir

Today on The China Beat, Jeff Wasserstrom, professor of history at UC Irvine and a reknowned China expert, comments on Lijia Zhang's memoir “Socialism is Great!” - A Worker’s Memoir of the New China, and reflects on his own experience in 1980s Shanghai. In his post, "A Soulful Memoir of 1980s China," Prof. Wasserstrom also has a few nice words about my book Apologies Forthcoming, in which several stories are set in the 1980s China.

Now I must get Lijia Zhang's memoir and Prof. Wasserstrom's new book, Global Shanghai, to read.
