This book is based on an in-depth conversation between Howard Burton and Michael Berry, Professor of Contemporary Chinese Cultural Studies at UCLA and a world-renowned Chinese literary translator and film scholar. After discussing the inspiring influence his English teacher had on him, the conversation covers topics such as the appeal of literary translation, modern and contemporary Chinese literature, the history and development of Chinese cinema, popular culture in modern China, censorship, and the importance of staying true to one's values.

I. From New Jersey to Nanjing - Discovering another world

II. Found in Translation - Manifesting values and creating impact

III. Freedom of the Press - Rewriting novels and denying translations

IV. Contemporary Voices - Literature, film, soft power, and cultural imbalances
