About the Book
In 1989, against the backdrop of the dramatic events in Tiananmen Square, a young woman in London remembers how, as a former hippie turned pseudo-Maoist, she went off to China, almost on a whim, a decade earlier and witnessed the momentous Peking Spring of 1978-79. She remembers her illicit love affair with a young activist, and how the consequences changed her life – and sadly, his.
Jessica Bell came up with her brilliant cover design almost immediately, as though she intuitively grasped what I wanted – even though I wasn’t sure myself! Her help and patience with the endless questions of a newbie to self-publishing, sustained me and I’m extremely grateful. I would never use anyone else and cannot recommend her highly enough.
