About this item

The #1 national bestseller by Alexandre “Sacha” Trudeau

The Montreal Gazette praises Alexandre Trudeau’s debut as “a work in the spirit of V. S. Naipaul’s celebrated India travelogues, an on-the-ground, agenda-free enquiry into a place that does not reveal its essence easily.” Ever since he was a boy, Alexandre Trudeau has been fascinated by the ancient, complex enigma that is China. Recounting his experiences in the China of recent years, Trudeau visits artists and migrant workers, townspeople and rural farmers. Often accompanied by a young Chinese journalist, Vivien, he explores realities caught in time between the China of our memories and the thrust of progress. Barbarian Lost is an insightful and witty account of the dynamic changes going on right now in China, as well as a look back into the deeper history of this highly codified society. On the ground with the women and men who make China tick, Trudeau shines new light on the country as only a traveller with his storytelling abilities can.
