The China Hand : Paul French

Adelaide Writers' Week - Monday, March 5 2012

UK - China

West Stage, 12pm

Paul French has lived and worked in Shanghai for many years. He is a widely published analyst and commentator on China. His recent book, Midnight in Peking, recounts the murder of an English girl in January 1937. In his version, French not only gives his reader an evocative sense of China in the 30s, he also solves the murder. Join him in conversation with Nicholas Jose.
