Books: The Slippery are Very Crafty
by David Grierson
a time when China is rarely out of the western media, we
have here an opportune and personal perspective on life in
the mighty People’s Republic – a country that
never fails to fascinate, bewilder, beguile and, from time
to time, frighten as well.
The book began its life as a series of email letters to
family and friends. However, the letters were soon taken
up by The Blackmore Vale Magazine where they gained a large
and enthusiastic readership.
A microcosm of modern China during a period of rapid change,
The Slippery are Very Crafty is full of compelling images,
lively humour and, ultimately, thoughtful reflection on
a land and its people.
320 pages, with 120 photographs.
