Jung Chang – Wild Swans


Helen has just finished reading Jung Chang’s ‘Wild Swans’, a book I read not long after it came out in the early 1990s and which GB read a couple of years ago in one go on a plane from New Zealand to England (or vice versa). It’s the one book which inspired me to write the author (and I got a very pretty reply despite her no doubt having an inordinate correspondence to deal with – it sold 10 million copies in 30 languages despite being banned in China).

It has reminded me that I really must do a list of the best non-fiction – my perception of the best, of course, which may differ entirely from everybody else’s. One day…

  1. It would, without any doubt at all, be on my list.
