The Silent Traveller in Edinburgh

New Edition

Chiang Yee was, in his own words, ‘dazzled’ by the Scottish capital. From the Meadows to Princes Street, from Arthur’s Seat to Calton Hill and Edinburgh Castle, he paints an unforgettable picture of the city and its people in the 1940s. Writing with wry humour, he broadens our perspective of familiar sights and customs, introduces us to Confucian philosophy and Chinese poetry, corrects cultural misconceptions, and encourages us to appreciate life.

Chiang Yee, the self-styled 'Silent Traveller' was a Chinese poet, author, painter and calligrapher. His Silent Traveller series spanned a dozen cities across three continents.
