Xinran , Buy Me The Sky

Xinran is a British-Chinese journalist, author and radio presenter. Born in Beijing, she presented the popular radio show, Words on the Night Breeze, to thousands of listeners throughout the 1990s. In 1997, she moved to London and began writing some of the stories she’d collected whilst travelling across her homeland. Her books include the seminal The Good Women of China, Sky Burial, China Witness: Message from an Unknown Chinese Mother and the novel Miss Chopsticks.

A unique chronicler of Chinese lives past and present, Xinran’s new book, Buy Me The Sky, looks past the headlines of China’s controversial, one-child policy and documents the real stories of the country’s one-child generations. Written with honesty, astuteness and an open heart, it paints a diverse and fascinating picture of ‘the little emperors’ and lost souls she meets, and their relationships with their parents, partners and the larger world.

Xinran will be in conversation with Madeleine Birch.
