Merry merry and happy happy from all of us at M…as a special holiday treat, we’re sharing a teaser of what to expect come spring at the Shanghai International Literary Festival 2019 (Remember! Dates areMarch 14-27, 2019).

The full programme will be released on February 15th and, as always, tickets will be sold exclusively on our website.  

You know we’re not going to divulge *everything*, but IF you were going to do some holiday reading, here are a few of our suggestions…wink, wink.

Celebrated science-fiction writer and winner of the Hugo Award, Hao Jingfang’s (郝景芳) Folding Beijing is an absolute must-read.

Award-winning British-Pakistani writer, Nadeem Aslam, considered “one of the most exciting and serious British novelists writing now” just came out with his latest novel, The Golden Legend. We’ve read it…we suggest you do the same.

Qiu Xiaolong’s (裘小龙) long-awaited new addition to the Inspector Chen series: in Shanghai RedemptionInspector Chen Cao finds himself and his reputation being set up for public disgrace, and possibly worse…a suspenseful drama! 

David Abulafia’s The Great Sea: A Human History of the Mediterranen is a, “magnificent and quite stunningly compendious history of the Mediterranean, with a key to unlocking its rich and turbulent past.” A jewel for all of you history buffs!

Equipped with a historian’s inquiring mind, Billy Griffith’s Deep Time Dreaming seeks to understand the extraordinary deep history of the Australian continent. A one-of-a-kind book, highly recommended!

Steve Brusatte, a young American paleontologist who has emerged as one of the foremost stars of the field masterfully tells the complete, surprising, and new history of the dinosaurs, drawing on cutting-edge science to dramatically bring to life their lost world and illuminate their enigmatic origins, spectacular flourishing, astonishing diversity, cataclysmic extinction, and startling living legacy. Captivating and revelatory, The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs is a book for the ages.” A Litfest Favorite, we can’t wait!

Stay tuned for more information in January…and always check our WeChat for the latest!
