Recently featured in the Straits Times, Young China Hand is a thriller about a crisis-era clash between Western wits, Chinese princeling-linked financiers and Peking duck farmers.
Inspired by true events and experiences between 2008 and 2013, Young China Hand combines an insider’s look into China’s secretive world of high finance, with a journey of self-discovery through unlikely friendships and outrageous betrayals.
The authors will provide an insight into how the book came into being, speak on their experiences of living and working in China, and answer your questions on anything from doing business to banquetting in China. The book will also be available for purchase through Grassroots Bookroom on the day.
“If you…want a fresh look at new China, then Young China Hand is the book you need to read.” -Tim Clissold, best-selling author of Mr. China and Chinese Rules: Mao’s Dog, Deng’s Cat and Five Timeless Lessons from the Front Lines in China.
