Deborah Fallows - Dreaming In Chinese

Thursday, September 16, 2010 - 7:00pm
The struggle to learn Mandarin proved key to unlocking many aspects of Chinese culture and behavior that had eluded Fallows when she began her three-year sojourn in Shanghai and Beijing. Interspersing anecdotes with lessons on tones, Fallows’s book is rich in the insights afforded by ordinary occurrences and encounters. Want to know today’s China?
