A Night in With Juli Min

A Night in With Juli Min

Join author, writer and editor-in-Chief of The Shanghai Literary Review, Juli Min, to celebrate the release of her dazzling and ambitious debut novel Shanghailanders. 

2040:  Leo Yang - handsome, distinguished, a real Shanghai man - is on the train back to the city after seeing his family off at the airport. His wife, Eko, and their two eldest children, Yumi and Yoko, are headed for Boston, though one daughter's revelation will soon reroute them to Paris.  

2039: Kiko, their youngest daughter and an aspiring actress, decides to pursue fame at any cost, like her icon Marilyn Monroe.  

2038: Yumi comes to Yoko in need, after a college-dorm situation at Harvard goes disastrously wrong. 

As the years rewind to 2014, Shanghailanders brings readers into the shared and separate lives of the Yang family parent by parent, daughter by daughter, and through the eyes of those in their orbit. Through the speed, technology and history of this old, futuristic city, we catch glimpses of an uncertain, unknowable future. 

Don’t miss the opportunity to join in a mesmerising exploration of marriage, relationships and the layered experience of time, in conversation with Juli and a special guest host.  

“Juli Min has established herself as a sharp chronicler of contemporary China-and of the ever-complicated matters of the heart.” Kirsten Chen, New York Times’ bestselling author of Counterfeit
