The Lost and Forgotten Languages of Shanghai
by Ruiyan Xu
This is a fabulous novel, a great read and especially recommended for anyone with specific interest in language and identity and the role of language in our relationships. For anyone who has played the part of the “expat”, the “native” or the “alien”, this novel will both remind and revise how you think language may have played a role in your experiences.
