A Boy of China
Author: Richard Loseby
isbn: 9781775540885

The incredible story of the search for one of Mao's lost children against the extraordinary backdrop of modern China. 'A son is very important in Chinese society,' he had said. 'To lose one is careless. The ancestors would be angry.' Intrigued by stories of a son given away by Mao and his then-wife during the Long March, and mystified by the 'official' explanation of the boy's fate (Whereabouts unknown - No further information available), Richard Loseby sets out alone across China in search of answers. Tracing Mao's own revolutionary journey, the author encounters the extraordinary realities of a new revolution, one that is transforming an ancient culture into a modern economic powerhouse. At the heart of the journey is the hunt for an elusive truth about a brutal and traumatic time in the nation's still raw history. Who was that abandoned boy? Might he still be alive? Would he even want to be found? The result is an amazing traveller's tale - revealing, poignant, funny, sad and unexpected at every turn. A Boy of China takes the reader on an unforgettable journey that is at once intimate and epic.
