Book Talk with Amy Sommers - Author of “Rumors from Shanghai”
Amy’s Book tells the story of an African American law graduate who arrives in booming Shanghai in 1940 from Seattle. Racial prejudice has propelled him to test his talents overseas. He succeeds in business and with his former Chinese and Japanese former law school friends enjoys the cosmopolitan life of Shanghai. Everything changes when our hero stumbles on a secret plan Japan is developing to destroy the U.S. Fleet at Pearl Harbor. He grapples with the question to put all he has gained at risk to save the country that despises him.

The novel highlights the role that African Americans played in the early days of Seattle as well as in Shanghai’s pre-war days.
