The Fortunes: Chinese in America
Mon 22 August 2016, 18:45 – 20:00 BST
Join us for the launch of new book The Fortunes by Man Booker nominee Peter Ho Davies.
Inspired by three figures who lived at pivotal moments of the past, and drawing on his own mixed-race experience, Ho Davies looks at the Chinese-American experience.
Ranging from the mouth of the Pearl River to the land of golden opportunity, this remarkable novel spans 150 years to tell a moving story of familial bonds denied and fragmented, of tenacity and pride, and of prejudice and the universal need to belong.
