China Summary

China by Edward Rutherfurd

Edward Rutherfurd, the internationally bestselling author of Sarum, London, New York and PARIS, turns his pen to the bustling modern behemoth that is China - a country full to the brim with a deep, beautiful and sometimes violent heritage.

Set from the 1800s onwards, Rutherfurd's beautiful novel explores the modern history of China with all the signature authenticity and interlacing personal stories that make him one of the most beloved authors of our time.

China Reviews

'From the ice-age to the present day, Rutherfurd's scope is vast. Both historical novel and adventure epic, this is a work of universal appeal. * Kirkus UK, on SARUM *
Hold your breath suspense, buccaneering adventure, and passionate tales of love and war. * The Times, on LONDON *
Remarkable ... grand. * The New York Times, on LONDON *
Not all good things come in small packages. If you like books that are big, Edward Rutherfurd is your man. He writes wonderful sagas, tales that cover centuries, always keeping these long stories lively by telling us about the events and conflicts of people's lives. Rutherfurd does the painstaking research; the reader has all the fun. * The Seattle Times, on IRELAND *
Incredible storytelling . . . Readers will fall in love with the iconic city. * Post and Courier, on NEW YORK *

About Edward Rutherfurd

Edward Rutherfurd was born in England, in the cathedral city of Salisbury. Educated locally, and at the universities of Cambridge, and Stanford, California, he worked in political research, bookselling and publishing. After numerous attempts to write books and plays, he finally abandoned his career in the book trade in 1983, and returned to his childhood home to write SARUM, a historical novel with a ten-thousand year story, set in the area around the ancient monument of Stonehenge, and Salisbury.

Four years later, when Sarum was published, it became an instant international bestseller, remaining 23 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List. Since then he has written five more bestsellers: RUSSKA, a novel of Russia; LONDON; THE FOREST, set in England's New Forest which lies close by Sarum, and two novels which cover the story of Ireland from the time just before Saint Patrick to the twentieth century.

In 2009 NEW YORK was published, and Edward is hard at work on another big novel at present. His books have been translated into twenty languages.
