The Last Kings of Shanghai: The Rival Jewish Dynasties
That Helped Create Modern China
by Jonathan Kaufman

 
From a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, this is an epic, multigenerational story of two rival dynasties that flourished in Shanghai and Hong Kong as 20th-century China surged into the modern era. In The Last Kings of Shanghai, Jonathan Kaufman tells the remarkable story of how these families ignited an economic boom and opened China to the world but remained blind to the country's deep inequality and to the political turmoil on their doorsteps. The story stretches from Baghdad to Hong Kong to Shanghai to London.

The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
 
Desiree and Stella Vignes, twin sisters, grow up together in a small, southern black community and run away at age 16. After they leave, it's not only the shape of their daily lives that is vasly different but also their families, their communities, their racial identities. Ten years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows nothing of her past.
