What the Chinese Don't Eat by Xinran
Book DescriptionSince June 2003 Xinran has been writing about China in her weekly column in the Guardian. She has covered a vast range of topics from food to sex education, and from the experiences of British mothers who have adopted Chinese daughters, to whether Chinese people do Christmas shopping or have swimming pools. Each of her columns inspired letters and questions and more opportunities for Xinran to shed light on the culture of her native land. What the Chinese Don't Eat collects these pieces together for the first time to give one unique Chinese woman's perspective on the connections and differences between the lives of British and Chinese people today.

Tells the remarkable stories of men and women born in China after 1979 - the recent generations raised under China's single-child policy. From the businessman's son unable to pack his own suitcase, to the PhD student who pulled herself out of extreme rural poverty, this book shows how these generations embody the hopes and fears of a great nation.

Miss Chopsticks, Paperback (July 2008)» View all books by Xinran
The Li sisters don't have much education, but one thing has been drummed into them: their mother is a failure because she hasn't managed to produce a son, and they themselves only merit a number as a name. Yet when circumstances lead the sisters to seek work in distant Nanjing, the shocking new urban environment opens their eyes.
