Premier Zhao Ziyang was one of China’s leading liberal reformers until he was purged from the government and arrested after the Tiananmen Square Protests. On today's show, we’ll talk to veteran human rights activist Bao Pu, the editor and translator of a new book based on secret tapes made by Premier Zhao that were smuggled out of the country. Then, a survivor tells the story of Air New England flight 248, which crashed on Cape Cod thirty years ago. And Isabel Fonseca discusses her novel Attachment, about a woman’s midlife crisis on a remote island in the Indian ocean. Plus, word maven Patricia T. O’Conner takes your calls about grammar and the English language.
