|Subject: Re: Books on China?|
So glad you are going to China. What ever your expectations, I am sure they will be exceeded. Here is a partial list, in no particular order:
Wild Swans by Jung Chang Looking For China by Judy Schultz Alone On the Great Wall-by William Lindesay Red China Blues by Jan Wong Jan Wong's China, you guessed it, by Jan Wong The good Women of China by Xinran River Town by Peter Hessler And finally a long time favourite of mine Many Splendoured Thing a novel by Dr. Han Suyin
I enjoyed them all for different reasons. You will be able to get reviews online, I am sure.
I will be interested to hear what others recommend as I have a continuing fascination with all things Chinese.
