Red Love
Beijing 1987-1989
by Michael Niblock

Into every life, a moment comes when, if you take it, your life could change forever...

After 40 years working mainly as a sub-editor on local and national newspapers in Scotland and the North of England, Michael Niblock drained his bank account of his last £3000 to take himself, his wife, and their youngest son on a first trip abroad. Michael took his family to distant China to visit his eldest son, who was working at the English language newspapers China Daily.

Their trip was meant to last only two weeks during the cold winter of 1987 but, while there, Michael was encouraged by new American friends to fill out a job application on a paper dinner napkin.

Red Love: Beijing 1987-1989 is the fascinating memoir of a middle-aged journalist who left behind his settled life in provincial England to become a professor in China in the late 1980s. Not only did he fall in love with China, but with his job and those he shared it with; his students. During his time there, Michael was a witness to the Tiananmen protests and experienced the loss of his fellows, massacred in the infamous summer of 1989.

This book will appeal to readers who enjoy memoirs, particularly those looking to learn more about different cultures.
