Beijing: Portrait of a City

Product Description
Product Details

About the Author

Alexandra Pearson spent her teenage years in China in the early eighties, and returned to Beijing in 1992 to study ethnomusicology at The Central Conservatory of Music. In 2002 she established a little book bar in Beijing called The Bookworm, which has since evolved into thriving hubs of literary activity in three cities across China. Lucy Cavender first came to Beijing in 1985 as a student, and later followed a career in development for the European Commission and the United Nations in Brussels, Mongolia, Central Asia, Malaysia and China. She has lived in Beijing for the past ten years with her husband, James Jynge, and three children, Tom, Ella and Ollie.


A gloriously idiosyncratic mix of form and flavor that takes us into territory no guidebook can reach. There is immense substance here, but that is almost beside the point. This is not just a book to learn from; it is a treat to be savoured. (Jonathan Watts, Guardian)
