On a Chinese Screen


E-book US$2.99

China. Late 1919. Best-selling writer W. Somerset Maugham arrives in Hong Kong. Four months and thousands of miles later his notebooks are overflowing. Originally intended as source material for his fiction, he decided instead to rework his descriptions into a collection of vignettes. The result, On a Chinese Screen, is a travel classic that takes us from the coastal cities far up the Yangtze River to the interior. A beautifully written book, it evokes a lost age of travel and the last days of Old China. This Camphor Press edition comes with a detailed introduction containing essential background information.
