A message from Fuchsia

 

Quote
So today is (UK) publication day! I started writing this book properly at my brother and sister-in-law’s table during the first pandemic lockdown, dreaming of China, and here it is. Hope it makes you very hungry. It’s also available as an audio book read by me. US/Australia publication in early November, Chinese edition next year (my fab translator He Yujia 何雨珈 is hard at work!). 食在中国

Thanks a bunch for sharing this!
I just listened to the first 4 episodes and am saving the final episode for later. I didn’t search to see if an audio book with Fuchsia reading is in the works but, if so, it will be a delight to listen to. I tend to race along when reading and this is writing that deserves to be savored.  Her pace and pauses allow for that beautifully. 
 

Edited to add - oops…just noticed your quoted message from Fuchsia confirming the audio book!
