Books: The Slippery are Very Crafty

by David Grierson

The Slippery are Very CraftyAt 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.


£12.99 + £3.00 p&p
