Journey of A Thousand Miles
My StoryBook - 2008
"Fans around the world have been won over by the Chinese pianist Lang Lang's immense charm and are in awe of his magnificent talent. The excitement his performances evoke is well documented. What is less known is the heart-wrenching story of his journey from a young prodigy in an industrial city in northern China to one of the greatest pianists of our time. Journey of a Thousand Miles documents the remarkable story of a boy and his father, who sacrificed almost everything for the belief in a young boy's talent. An engaging, informative cultural commentator who bridges east and west, Lang Lang has written more than an autobiography; his story opens a door to Chinese culture at a time when the world's attention will be on Beijing - Lang Lang will perform at the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games."--Provided by publisher.
