Paul French, "City of Devils: The Two Men Who Ruled the Underworld of Old Shanghai"
The Promise – Love and loss in Modern China - Xinran talks to Paul French Xinran’s acclaimed body of work, encompassing 30 years and hundreds of interviews, has established her as the finest chronicler of Chinese women’s lives. Her new work The Promise focuses on the moving stories of six women from four generations of the Han family, and how much has changed in their differing understanding of sex, emotions and love. In their own words, the life of the heart shines through the generations against a vivid backdrop of war, political turmoil and hardship. Chatting to Xinran we welcome historian Paul French, whose evocative and gripping accounts of 1930s Peking and Shanghai have delighted readers in his bestselling books Midnight in Peking and City of Devils.
