A revolutionary woman for her time, Emily Hahn takes us on an adventure through the many faces that populate the landscape of China. Blending fiction and non-fiction seamlessly, Emily Hahn looks at everything and everyone she met on her breath-taking journey through the China of the nineteen-thirties. Hahn investigates not so much the complicated issues of political blocs and party conflict, but the ordinary, or extraordinary, lives of Chinese residents and tourists. This includes taking us into the personal lives of everyone from Asian prostitutes to European merchants. Join Emily Hahn as she explores China in this literary adventure.
Hahn (Eve and the Apes) was considered scandalous when she published this 1944 memoir of her nine years in China and Hong Kong. Contemporary readers will discover that the keen prose is suffused with an intellectual freedom and freshness of perspective that vivify the concerns of a long-gone world.
