What's China reading? Canadian history

This is not a Norman Bethune story. Gold Mountain Blues, a novel by Chinese-born Vancouver resident Zhang Ling, follows five generations of a Chinese Canadian family from railroad construction days to the present. It's a bestseller in China and a contender for something considered to be China's Booker Prize. Penguin Canada will bring out an English language edition in Canada in 2011, sez its press release.
