Adventures and tribulations of a young correspondent in China

Author: Javier Borràs Pages: 264

Javier Borràs Arumí is a young journalist who moved to Beijing to work in a Spanish news agency. There he discovered first-hand what China is like: seductive and schizophrenic, fun and profound, tender and dark.

With a style that recalls the best narrative journalism, the author introduces us to a China in which his own gaze will continue to change, as his knowledge of the country grows and blends with his daily experiences. A combination of a travel book and an essay, written with an air of confidence and a curious gaze, which transports us to a country which is as mysterious as it is fascinating.

Key facts:

  • The author contributes to various media outlets, such as Jot Down, Esglobal, La Vanguardia, and El Mundo.
  • A combination of a travel book and an essay, fresh and respectful but without being naive, it leads us to uncover the past, the diversity, and the great transformations China has seen.
