The China Price on French radio
The book made its first cameo in France yesterday during an interview I did with Shanghai-based French journalist Carrie Nooten. The piece, which aired on France Inter, is about Chinese migrant workers, the 200 million people who have moved from the countryside to the cities in search of better paying jobs and whose herculean efforts are at the heart of The China Price. The name of the show is "et pourtant elle tourne". Just in case you were thinking of listening to the broadcast but were dreading hearing me speak that beautiful language poorly: I speak English, not French. Listen to the interview here.
