CHINA: The Novel (15 May 2021)

From the internationally bestselling author of Paris and New York comes the great clash of East and West with Rutherfurd’s trademark epic style. Rutherfurd has enthralled millions of people with his grand, sweeping historical sagas that tell the history of an iconic place over multiple generations. Extraordinarily researched and majestically told, Edward Rutherfurd’s book paints a thrilling portrait of one of the most singular and remarkable countries in the world. And the history is accurate, down to the smallest detail. CHINA: The Novel brings to life the rich terrain of this vast and constantly evolving country, dramatizing the epoch when the colonial greed of Western powers shattered the stability of the two-thousand-year-old empire, and the Chinese learned to fight back in ways that echo down to this day.
