‘Staying’-An Excerpt from ‘People’s Republic of Amnesia’

chinafile.com — Zhang Ming has become used to his appearance startling small children. Skeletally thin, with cheeks sunk deep into his face, he walked gingerly across the cream-colored hotel lobby as if his limbs were made of glass. On his forehead were two large, perfectly circular purple-red bruises, one above each eye.

Hong Kong’s ‘Common Aspiration’ Is Anything But

foreignpolicy.com — In early January, the Hong Kong government released a report on the "recent community and political situation in Hong Kong:" in other words, where things stand after 2014 Hong Kong protests, which saw hundreds of thousands protesting in the city's streets for more democracy.

newyorker.com — On Thursday, an argument over confetti briefly convulsed a small corner of the encampment set up by Occupy Hong Kong protesters in Hong Kong's Admiralty district.

Book Review: The People’s Republic of Amnesia: Tiananmen Revisited by Louisa Lim
