Editorial Reviews


"I have never read such a vivid account of what it was like to grow up during the Cultural Revolution in China, especially for a young artist."  —Peter Gabriel, musician

"A hymn to the Chinese way of thinking and feeling about food, while the story of Guo’s development as a musician, his family relations and the history of China are woven artfully into the narrative."  —The Daily Telegraph

"Full of charm and delight . . . His world is vivid with colours, tastes, smells and sounds."  —Financial Times

"Can be read not only as a childhood memoir, or an intimate snapshot of an extraordinary period in China’s history, but as a story with food as a vehicle for freedom. It is the food and sense of community unification it creates in desperate times that stands out."  —Brisbane Courier Mail
