  • From the Publisher
May 22, 2014

A new nov­el by the author of The Last Chi­nese Chef, Nicole Mon­es reveals not one but three untold his­tor­i­cal sto­ries: the untold saga of Amer­i­can jazz men in Shang­hai, the sav­ing of thou­sands of Jew­ish lives by Chi­nese Con­sul Ho Feng-Shan, and the Chi­nese gov­ern­men­t’s attempt to save 100,000 more Jew­ish lives by estab­lish­ing a per­ma­nent reset­tle­ment zone for Jews next to Bur­ma. Drawn from per­son­al accounts, filled with his­tor­i­cal per­son­al­i­ties, based entire­ly on true events, Night in Shang­hai is a lit­er­ary page-turn­er that opens up new vis­tas in black his­to­ry and Holo­caust history.
