About this title

Synopsis:

Unexpectedly in 1958, an irreverent British journalist and Australian cartoonist duo were granted visas to visit Communist China at its most closed and inscrutable. They went, the saw, and they produced one of a picture of China at a key moment in its history, still feeding off the exhilaration of the creation of ""People's China"" in 1949, and full of optimism and blind idealism.

Review:

"As an intriguing historical artifact alone, this would be a fascinating book; its humility, lightness of touch and open-mindedness make it a joy to read and a minor classic." --Aelred Doyle, author, That's Shanghai
