Out of the Gobi: Shan Weijian in Conversation 單偉建《走出戈壁:我的中美故事》

Weijian Shan will talk about his bestselling book Out of the Gobi: My Story of China and America. The book was named as one of the Ten Best in 2019 by the Financial Times. He will tell a story of a life that is a microcosm of modern history of China, and of how, improbably, that life became intertwined with America. Shan combines his extraordinary experiences with the informed analysis of a U.S.-trained economist and accomplished investor to shed light on China’s rise and its relationship with the U.S. 

This event will be conducted in Mandarin.

單偉建先生將介紹他的新作:《走出戈壁:我的中美故事》。此書是一部回憶錄,也是歷史紀實。它記述了一段跌宕起伏的歷史以及在歷史浪潮和漩渦之中,作者令人難以置信、極其曲折的人生沉浮。他少年失學,陷入人生谷底,飽經饑寒交迫。逆境之中,他沒有沉淪,為了「有朝一日」而不屈不撓,歷經十載。風暴過後,歷史翻轉,他把握際遇,十年苦讀,成為美國頂尖學府教授。至此,作者認為人生才剛剛開始,歷史又要掀開新的篇章,機運還在前面。《走出戈壁——我的中美故事》英文版在2019年出版,很快成為暢銷書,英美各大報刊好評如潮。英國《金融時報》將它評為2019年全球十大好書之一,認為給英語世界填補了一個通過個人親身經歷了解中國當代史的空白。

該活動將以普通話進行。
