Of Wild Hearts and Weasels


Here is a link to our latest Q&A for National Geographic Book Talk, with the brilliant, young New Yorker correspondent in China, Evan Osnos. The book is called Age of Ambition: Chasing Fortune, Truth and Faith in the New China. And if you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend it. Evan is one of the keenest and most critical observers of China out there. but it’s clear from the book that this is also a love affair: that, despite the negatives like corruption and trial without jury, he deeply admires and respects the inventiveness, humour and vividness of the Chinese people.
