2.  Guest: Michael Willihnganz                           Call-in Time:  5:30 p.m.

Guest summary:

Mike and Wendy Willihnganz live by a lake about twenty five miles north of Ann Arbor Michigan, with a daughter, one dog, two cats and any number of fish.

We have had the good fortune to spend two vacations in China with our friends Mike and Amy Lee and their families. From Beijing to Hong Kong, on one trip and Shanghai up the Yangtze to the foot hills of Tibet on the second. We climbed the sacred mountains and visited endless tombs, pagodas, historical sites. To that list, one must add unnumbered gift shops and factories -- with gift shops.

Unfortunately, we often did not, in all honesty, know the relevance of what we were seeing. Only after five years of reading and researching did I come to my current overview of the people and history of that vast and beautiful land. I was there, in the former Canton area, as a casual student in the mid 1990s, before I entered a Masters Course in Linguistics at Wayne State University, Detroit. I hope that we'll have the chance to return and revisit China and to see it through new eyes.

About the book:

The China Sand Wedge is a fictional account of four generations of the Wen Family, who lived in "interesting times"  -- the years from 1832 and 1978.

Based tightly on the real history of China, the characters interact with the famous and infamous of the time and are seen in a no-larger-than-life perspective.

The Wen Family starts high in the mountains of central China, in Shaanxi Province, in the person of a five year old peasant boy, scratching his first characters in the dirt. How he gets his education, position and wealth is the second part of the story.

The first part of the story is actually what happened after much had changed to make China the country and people that we see today.

The rest of the book is the Transition from the formal Qing Dynasty into the Peoples Republic of China -- as seen through the eyes of members of the Wen family and told to my protagonist Nick Remos by the last member of that family. Nick is an American technician who gets himself 'Shanghied to Shanghai' and left to fend for himself in the turbulant years after the Cultural Revolution and works his passage out of China by retelling the tale.
