BookDescription

For the privileged a cosmopolitan pleasure ground;

For the desperate a port of last resort.
A pot of gold at the end of an Oriental rainbow;

A thick slice of hell denounced from the pulpit.
The start of a journey for many;

The end of the road for some.
A place to find fame, or to seek anonymity;

Rogues, chancers, showgirls, criminals…
For so many people from so many lands, there was one phrase that sent a tingle of hope or a shiver of anticipation down every spine:

“DESTINATION SHANGHAI”

About the Author

Paul French is the author of the prize-winning Midnight in Peking and City of Devils: A Shanghai Noir. Both books became bestsellers and are now being adapted for TV.

Paul lived in Shanghai for many years researching, writing and blogging about the city as it was between the world wars. His life-long obsession with old Shanghai and the foreigners who once lived in the most cosmopolitan of world cities has led to his researching many tales and life stories, some of which are gathered in Destination Shanghai.
