China Expat: A Decade of Writing

Discovery Publisher Limited
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

China Expat – A Decade Of Writing brings together a collection of the published work of four well known expatriates for the first time in one volume.

With articles taken from the archives of the popular China Expat magazine and website from 2001 to 2011, this collection will provide memories of early days, provoke exclamations of “I didn’t know that!” and inspire today’s generation of China expats to get out, engage and explore.

In an age when blogs are mainly blah, the China Expat articles within will provoke, provide food for thought and raise a wry smile.
