Please join us for lunch with Jonathan Chatwin, author of the new book on Beijing's legendary Chang An Avenue, entitled "Long Peace Street--A walk in modern China." Dr Jonathan Chatwin is a British writer and journalist. He holds a doctorate in English Literature from the University of Exeter and currently writes for a range of publications on travel, literature and history, with a particular focus on China.


Advance praise for Long Peace Street:


'Bringing together past and present, personal and political, Jonathan Chatwin gives readers a thoughtful and deeply-informed account of modern China through the marvelous device of a stroll down Beijing's longest avenue - and all in lucid and compelling prose.' -- Rana Mitter, Professor of the History and Politics of Modern China at Oxford University


'Even the most dedicated flaneur has to work hard to find the charm in Chang'an Avenue, the main thoroughfare of, as Jonathan Chatwin rightly describes it, the "glorious mess of Beijing". Industrial relics, bankrupt theme parks, rabbit hutch housing, paranoid Communist Party elite boltholes and Tiananmen's ghosts all loom large. But Chatwin walks the walk and, along the way dissects the street, its denizens and its enduring role in China's history and collective modern traumas.' -- Paul French, author of Midnight in Peking and City of Devils: A Shanghai Noir.
