Event description

Description

The bestselling author of 'The Good Women of China' will be in Leeds to discuss her latest book. The moving stories in 'Buy Me the Sky' bring to life the one-child generation who will shape the world’s future over the next decades.

As the first generations of only children grow up and become parents in their turn, Xinran set out to tell their stories that even she, born and raised in China, found hard to fathom. From the businessman's son unable to pack his own suitcase, to the tragic story of a young woman whose rural parents, desperate for a grandson, forced her big brother to drown two nieces – these stories show the emerging face of China.
