China is one of the world's most rapidly changing cultural and economic landscapes which is being transformed from the inside by a new generation of savvy and inspired individuals. Zha collects nuanced and sharply etched profiles of these movers and shakers, capturing both the concrete detail and the epic dimension of life in the world's fastest growing economy through a vivid cast of characters. Deeply engaging, lucid and poignant, Zha's insightful insider-outsider portraits offer a view of China that few have seen outside of the country.
