Our celebrity author Helen Wang just announced that her book The Chinese Dream: The Rise of the World’s Largest Middle Class and What It Means to You will be translated into Chinese and published in August.
Helen Wang “has sold Chinese translation rights to Shanghai Wenhui Publishing House, and will be available in China in August. I am really looking forward to it!
In celebrating this good news, my heart also goes out to all the victims of the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in Japan. All the royalties of The Chinese Dreambook sales in March will be donated to Red Cross Japan Earth Quake and Pacific Tsunami Fund.”
Getting a book, aimed at a US audience, published in China too is a remarkable achievement, given the huge differences in background of both audiences.
