Dispatches from Hong Kong and WuhanSat 10 Sep, 10.30am
Hear from award-winning Hong Kong journalist Louisa Lim and celebrated Chinese novelist Murong Xuecun as they discuss their captivating new books that illuminate moments of great political and historical significance obscured by the Chinese Communist Party and state media. Lim's Indelible City examines Hong Kong's recent protests through the lens of its colonial past to provide an up-close view of the city, its people and an untold history they are claiming just as it is being erased. Xuecun bravely travelled the locked-down city of Wuhan to interview people from all walks of life for Deadly Quiet City, a haunting account of COVID's ground zero that he had to leave China to publish. They share their stories with ABC Radio's Paul Barclay.
