Some people cannot lead a straightforward life. Expelled from school, thrown out of university, accommodated by the British Army, Mark Kitto finally found his vocation in China where he created a unique publishing empire. Unfortunately he was thrown out of that too, by his Communist Party partners. For eight years, Mark lived peacefully on a Chinese mountain in a village built by missionaries in the early nineteenth century. This experience was the basis for Mark's best-selling first book, China Cuckoo, published in 2009. Mark and his family now live in Norfolk.
