Sasha Su-Ling Welland discusses her book A Thousand Miles of Dreams: The Journeys of Two Chinese Sisters.
"A Thousand Miles of Dreams" recounts the evocative and intimate biography of two intensely rivalrous Chinese sisters, a writer and a doctor, whose eventful lives took very different paths in their quest to be independent women. They were Chinese modern girls who sought to forge their own way during a period of social revolution that unsettled relations between men and women, even among nations. Daughters of an imperial scholar-official and a concubine, the two sisters followed professional trajectories unimaginable to their parents' generation- Books Inc
