    China’s One-Child Policy – recently abolished – has shaped an entire generation of men and women. Those born after 1979 are defined by the policy, and their stories are both remarkable and commonplace in this country of 1.4 billion.

    China’s One-Child Policy – recently abolished – has shaped an entire generation of men and women. Those born after 1979 are defined by the policy, and their stories are both remarkable and commonplace in this country of 1.4 billion. Xinran’s Buy Me the Sky is an intimate snapshot of this generation. The author made her name in China through talk radio as host of the call-in program “Words on the Night Breeze” from 1989 to 1997. She has since gone on to become an international bestselling author with books that promote women’s issues and cultural understanding, such as The Good Women of ChinaSky Burial, and Message from an Unknown Chinese Mother: Stories of Loss and Love. 近期刚被取消的独生子女政策在过去的几十年中影响了整整一代人的命运。在这个拥有14亿人口的国家,1979年后出生的这代人的生活与计划生育政策密不可分,而他们的故事则是平凡又不同寻常的。Xinran(薛欣然)的作品《Buy Me the Sky》是为这代人拍写的一张近距离快照。薛欣然曾在1989至1997年间担任电台互动谈话节目“轻风夜话”的主持人并被全国听众知晓。之后她致力于写作有关女性问题和文化交流的书籍,并成为了世界级的畅销书作家。她的作品包括《The Good Women of China》、《Sky Burial》和《Messages from an Unknown Chinese Mother: Stories of Loss and Love》。 (Chinese/English中/英文) Buy Tickets 买票
