Lee, Chang-raeOn Such a Full Sea

Stemming from research on factory towns outside Shenzhen, Chang-rae Lee’s fifth novel, On Such a Full Sea, eventually evolved into the dystopian tale of 16-year-old Fan set in a not-too-distant future Baltimore, USA. In this novel, Lee, a Pulitzer-nominated Princeton creative writing professor, expands on the themes of his previous works, including social stratification, technology, and collective identity. Moderated by New York Times Beijing Bureau Chief Edward Wong.
