New Year New Books: David’s first picks for 2019
Here are some of the books I'm looking forward to reading in 2019. As a nine-year-old I was an ardent Maoist; I've softened a little since, but for my money Julia Lovell is one of the finest western interpreters of China and Chinese thought. A different Julia explores the lost continent just off the coast I grew up next to. And I can read Barry Lopez and Robert Macfarlane until the cows fly home to roost. Enjoy!
