Hong Ying: K: The Art of Love
Like all Hong Yings work, K is written with a wonderfully intense simplicity its tough, uncompromising, direct and tense with strong emotion, but also full of poetry and grace.
Andrew Motion, Poet Laureate. Celebrated Chinese author Hong Ying will read from her latest novel, K: The Art of Love (Marion Boyars £9.99) Set in 1930s China, this true story is a tragic tale of romance, desire and untimely
death. Lin Cheng and Julian Bell, darling of the Bloomsbury set, embark on a passionate but doomed affair. Hong Ying grew up in the slums of Chongquing on the Yangtze river in China. She is a poet and author of Summer of Betrayal (Bloomsbury) and an autobiography Daughter of the River (Bloomsbury).
