Sailing down the Yangzi–

shemtop-ten-tours

Gratitude to Professor Ross Terrill, Harvard University, Fairbank Center for East Asian Research. Author: Mao, China in Our Time, Madame Mao, & The New Chinese Empire– for his support of At the Heart of the Universe:

“Sailing down the Yangzi I read At the Heart of the Universe with pleasure. It’s a poignant story of China and America, an earnest family, and how race affects all, yet ultimately does not matter. At the Heart of the Universe is an honest, earthy, deeply-felt novel. Scenes now wrenching, now joyous, will linger in readers’ minds. So will sights and sounds and emotions of rural China. The exciting pages of ‘At the Heart of the Universe’ shed a whole new light on the term Chinese-American.”
