    Edward Platt’s non-fiction history of Hebron, City of Abraham, reveals how certain stories become embedded in places and shape them for centuries to come.

Yan Ge’s fiction centres on the fictional Sichuan town of Pingle, using local dialect to depict  squabbling families and small-town life with warmth, humour and razor-sharp insights. Edward Platt’s non-fiction history of Hebron, City of Abraham, reveals how certain stories become embedded in places and shape them for centuries to come, while German journalist Kai Strittmatter has been a correspondent in China and Turkey and written cultural guides to both countries.
