My father, whose family escaped to Hong Kong, read Helen Zia's "Last Boat Out of Shanghai." He wrote, "The author captured the angst and ethos of that time ... perfectly. The time still lives in vivid memory. I still remember PL had to interrupt his attendance at St. John University. The family in HK was worried about his getting an airline ticket to come home." I have my father's contact information if the author wants to interview him and add to her collection of interviews. He appreciated the book very much.
