Hong Ying: K: The Art of Love
‘Like all Hong Ying’s work, K is written with a wonderfully intense simplicity – it’s 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).
