A Dream-Like Chinese Library: Today in Critical Linking

Critical Linking is sponsored today by Target Churchill by Warren Adler & James C. Humes.



Located in Zhen Yuan, China, the library Yangzhou Zhongshuge, which is designed by Shanghai studio XL-Muse, was completed recently with inspiration taken from its waterside location and arched bridges.

But perhaps the most interesting revelation here is Rivera’s claim that his Trump advocacy led to HarperCollins––a Murdoch-owned publisher––deciding not to publish his upcoming book

HarperCollins seems to run into these political conflicts more often than other publishers, which I suppose isn’t surprising since NewsCorp (the parent company of both it and Fox News) is owned by Rupert Murdoch.

 “I didn’t sign up to be in a television show. Out of respect to the studio and everyone in involved, they may have changed their mind and may be doing something different, but I’m not necessarily interested in doing a television show.”

They are going to have to find a new Tris.
