That We May Live is a remarkable anthology of Chinese speculative fiction offers seven tales of societal responsibility and individual freedom. It's also the first book in the brand-new Calico Series, we bring you work by some of today's most exciting writers from China and Hong Kong, including Dorothy Tse (tr. Natascha Bruce), Zhu Hui (tr.

Tessa Keswick (yes, of those Jardines Keswicks) memoir The Colour of Sky After Rain starts from her first trip to China in 1982. Over the next thirty years, she travelled extensively in China, visiting its temples and landmarks, the sites of its most famous battles, and the birthplaces of its best-known poets and philosophers. She also witnessed China's transformation, as hundreds of millions were lifted out of poverty and the country emerged as an economic superpower in waiting.
