As a keen Sino-phile I found the Sarah Lloyds 'Chinese Characters' book to be an excellent read, packed with atmosphere and insight. Also unlike some writers she does not overwhelmingly project her own presence, the book is what she sees and hears with open-ness and insight. Actually, tho I read this [...]
