The Ivy Bookshop welcomes Frank Langfitt to discuss his new book The "Shanghai Free Taxi: Journeys With the Hustlers and Rebels of the New China". In this adventurous, original book, NPR correspondent Frank Langfitt used his taxi—free rides in exchange for good conversation—to get to know a wide range of colorful, compelling characters representative of the new China: folks like “Beer,” a slippery salesman who tries to sell Langfitt a used car; and Rocky, a farm boy turned Shanghai lawyer.
