Product description

From the Back Cover

`Hsiao-Hung Pai takes you on a haunting journey into the heart of migrants' lives in Britain and you cannot help but be gripped, moved and shamed' Felicity Lawrence

`A book that really needed to be written. Utterly gripping, deeply moving' Marina Lewycka

`An incredibly moving book that in turn angers and saddens and above all makes you want to change things' Nick Broomfield

About the Author

Hsiao-Hung Pai was born in Taiwan and came to Britain in 1991. She first started writing for Chinese publications and later for the Guardian, specialising in stories about the Chinese community. She covered the Morecambe cockle picking tragedy for The Guardian and in order to understand the plight of other Chinese migrants, she went undercover, and is the only journalist working in Britain who has truly penetrated the world of undocumented Chinese migrants.

Hsiao-Hung now works as a freelance journalist, writing for the Guardian, the New Statesman, and others. Nick Broomfield’s recent film GHOSTS was based on her work. CHINESE WHISPERS is her first book. Hsiao-Hung lives in London with her partner.
