About the Book

Chiang Yee was, in his own words, ‘dazzled’ by the Scottish capital. From the Meadows to Princes Street, from Arthur’s Seat to Calton Hill and Edinburgh Castle, he paints an unforgettable picture of the city and its people in the 1940s. Writing with wry humour, he broadens our perspective of familiar sights and customs, introduces us to Confucian philosophy and Chinese poetry, corrects cultural misconceptions, and encourages us to appreciate life.
