Product description


Praise for Chinese Whispers: 'An incredibly moving book that in turn angers and saddens and above all makes you want to change things.' --Nick Broomfield

'An extraordinary, gut-wrenching expose.' --Independent

'Utterly gripping, deeply moving.' Marina Lewycka, author of Two Caravans; 'You must read this book. It will help you get into the nooks and crannies of our sweatshops and supermarkets. It will help you understand the suffering of a whole army of people who are not counted and not cared for. Read it, for the sake of your country.' Benjamin Zephaniah; 'This is not just a deeply moving book, it is a call to arms.' Institute of Race Relations; 'A remarkable piece of investigative journalism.' --Observer
