“Have you seen today’s Daily Telegraph?” Last summer a friend I had not heard from for years was on the phone.
“Well, THE WOMAN WHO LOST CHINA, is in it!”
I hurried down to our local village shop. Sitting in the sunshine on the pub wall in front of the dovecote, I cautiously opened the newspaper. Sure enough, my friend was right.
Rana Mitter author of CHINA’S WAR WITH JAPAN 1937-1945 THE STRUGGLE FOR SURVIVAL had included THE WOMAN WHO LOST CHINA in his ten book literary tour of China. I couldn’t believe it; seeing my “WOMAN” listed alongside great literary names from the Chinese Republican period such as Lu Hsun and Mao Dun. It was certainly a red letter day!
You don’t need to go to China to tour China, and there are a host of fantastic China books in English outside the bestseller list. Click here to read Rana’s suggestions-Flights of Imagination
