Review in Caixin: Biography Hits High Notes of Chinese Soprano’s Career

A review of Journey to the West is published in Caixin Global, part of the influential Chinese financial media group Caixin. 

Reporter Joshua Dummer writes: "The book overall is engaging and passionate enough that even an opera philistine like me (I’ve only ever been to one once and I fell asleep) felt the need to listen to a Verdi opera after finishing the book, to see if I could appreciate what Ho and He clearly love."
