This is a brilliant memoir of that journey to find your East Asian heritage when you grow up in small town England as a person of colour. But what a journey!! Esther left the West Midlands to join the PLA in 1949 at the beginning of the Communist era and she gives a tremendous insight into those early days. The warning signs are already all there...

Can you believe Tiananmen Square was *30* years ago this coming June?!! Do you remember those haunting interviews with Esther Cheo Ying (author of 'Black Country Girl in Red China') who talked about the PLA of which she had direct experience ...and then the horrendous footage of the army moving in to clear protesters?

Chimerica by Lucy Kirkwood has been adapted for TV and will be on telly over four weeks from this coming Wednesday (17th April).

The Financial Times has previewed it:
