Product description

Review

Continuing the fascination with China he showed in his debut, Under Fishbone Clouds, Meekings s prose is exemplary, showing a desire not just to honour Chinese culture, but to contribute to it. --The Herald

'The obvious comparison here is David Mitchell and if Meekings doesn't always quite match his ventriloquism, he certainly gives each story a distinctive style and knows how to intrigue' --Jonathan Ruppin, Foyles

'The obvious comparison here is David Mitchell and if Meekings doesn't always quite match his ventriloquism, he certainly gives each story a distinctive style and knows how to intrigue.' --Jonathan Ruppin's Top 10 Books of 2011, Foyle s.

About the Author

Sam Meekings has garnered international acclaim for his debut novel, Under Fishbone Clouds, also set in China. Born in Margate, Sam grew up in Walberton, not far from Chichester and took an undergraduate degree in Modern History and English Literature at Mansfield College, Oxford University. It was at the end of his Masters Degree in Creative Writing at Edinburgh University, in 2005, that he moved to China to teach English. He now spends most of the year there, with this wife and family, working as a teacher and editor. In 2006 and 2007 Sam was longlisted for the Eric Gregory Award for poets under 30. His debut collection of poetry, The Bestiary, is also published by Polygon.
