Sinopsis: In 1936, classical pianist Thomas Greene is recruited to Shanghai to lead a jazz orchestra of fellow African-American expats. From being flat broke in segregated Baltimore to living in a mansion with servants of his own, he becomes the toast of a city obsessed with music, money, pleasure, and power, even as it ignores the rising winds of war.

Song Yuhua is refined and educated, and has been bonded since age eighteen to Shanghai's most powerful crime boss in payment for her father's gambling debts. Outwardly submissive, she burns with rage and risks her life spying on her master for the Communist Party.

Only when Shanghai is shattered by the Japanese invasion do Song and Thomas find their way to each other. Though their union is forbidden, neither can back down from it in the turbulent years of occupation and resistance that follow. Torn between music and survival, freedom and commitment, love and world war, they are borne on an irresistible riff of melody and improvisation to Night in Shanghai's final, impossible choice.

In this stunningly researched novel, Nicole Mones not only tells the forgotten story of black musicians in the Chinese jazz age, but also weaves in a startling true tale of Holocaust heroism little-known in the West.

Biografía del autor: Nicole Mones is the award-winning author of The Last Chinese Chef, Lost in Translation, and A Cup of Light. She won the World Gourmand Cookbook Award and the Kafka Prize. Nicole is a member of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations.

AudioFile Earphones Award winner Emily Woo Zeller has been described by AudioFile magazine as doing "an extraordinary job of varying the voices in the dialogue without losing the intimacy of the story." While she specializes in Asian American narratives, Emily's work spans a broad spectrum, including young adult fiction.
