In Denver, CO, there was a reading and celebration on Saturday, April 29th 2017 at BookBar. At the event, Christopher’s story was read by the wonderful and lovely Manda Manning, co-creator of the travel journal Sisters That Stray.
Christopher conducted an interview with Peter Ho Davies about his new multigenerational novel, THE FORTUNES, and the Chinese-American experience, Hollywood’s first Chinese-American film star Anna May Wong and her trip to China in protest of role casting discrimination, the injustice of the 1980s Vincent Chin case in Detroit, writing, research, travel to China, amalgams of fact and fiction, and many other fascinating topics.
Peter Ho Davies is the author of two novels, The Fortunes and The Welsh Girl (long-listed for the Man Booker Prize), and two short story collections, The Ugliest House in the World (winner of the John Llewelyn Rhys Prize) and Equal Love (A New York Times Notable Book).
Praise for THE FORTUNES:
“Panoramic in scope yet intimate in detail, The Fortunes might be the most honest, unflinching, cathartically biting novel I’ve read about the Chinese American experience. It asks the big questions about identity and history that every American needs to ask in the 21st century.”
—Celeste Ng, author of Everything I Never Told You
