Editorial Reviews


“A magnificent epic novel of modern China . . . The book is worth reading solely as a factual reminder of the chaos and calamity of China, as a quarter of the world’s people struggled and suffered toward modernity in the stormy and cruel decades between 1920 and 1980.” —Toronto Star

“Grey’s depth of feeling makes Peking a compelling epic.” —The Sunday Telegraph

“Skillfully narrated, the book is a parable of China and the West’s love affair with it.” —Far Eastern Economic Review

“Anthony Grey’s gripping fiction, based on meticulously attributed sources, is part epic, part blockbuster. . . . A moving chronicle.” —The Times (London)

“Outstanding . . . Balance, sanity, serenity and realized human love in the face of a shifting and violent and mostly hateful world.” —The Sunday Record

About the Author

Anthony Grey became a foreign correspondent with Reuters after beginning his career in journalism in Norfolk, England, where he was born and educated. He reported on the Cold War from East Berlin, Prague, Warsaw, Budapest, Sofia, and Bucharest for two years before being assigned to China to cover the Cultural Revolution. There, his imprisonment by Red Guards in a house beside the historic Forbidden City of China’s emperors attracted worldwide headlines for over two years. After his release, he was awarded the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to journalism, and was named UK Journalist of the Year. He has gone on to become a radio and television broadcaster, bestselling historical novelist, independent publisher, and frequent public speaker.
