I’ve written three non fiction books about China, two of them about Xinjiang – China’s Forgotten People, which looks at the issues behind the violence in Xinjiang. The Tree That Bleeds, my first book on this subject, appeared in 2011 from Luath Press. For more on this, see my interview in the New York Times.
My most recent book on China, Chasing the Chinese Dream, is a book of reportage about China’s transition to a primarily urban society.
My work has appeared in the Guardian, the London Review of Books, The Financial Times, The Times Literary Supplement, The Independent, N+1, The Los Angeles Review of Books, Dissent, VICE, 3 A.M. Magazine, Literary Review and The Dublin Review.
I’ve made media appearances on TV and Radio shows like the BBC Today Programme, BBC World News, and the BBC One Breakfast programme.
In 2014 I won the Willesden Herald Short Story Competition.
