The internationally bestselling author of Paris and New York takes on an exhilarating new world with his trademark sweeping style in China: The Novel.

Edward Rutherfurd has enthralled millions of readers with his grand, sweeping historical sagas that tell the history of a famous place over multiple generations. Now, in China: The Novel, Rutherfurd takes readers into the rich and fascinating milieu of the Middle Kingdom.



The story begins in 1839, at the dawn of the first Opium War, and follows Chinese history through Mao’s Revolution and up to the present day. Rutherfurd chronicles the rising and falling fortunes of members of Chinese, British and American families, as they negotiate the tides of history. Along the way, in his signature style, Rutherfurd provides a deeply-researched portrait of Chinese history and society, its ancient traditions and great upheavals, and its emergence as a rising global power. As always, we are treated to romance and adventure, heroines and scoundrels, grinding struggle and incredible fortunes.

China: The Novel brings to life the rich terrain of this vast and constantly evolving country. From Shanghai, to Nanking, to the Great Wall, Rutherfurd chronicles the turbulent rise and fall of empires as the colonial West meets the opulent and complex East in a dramatic struggle between cultures and people.



Extraordinarily researched and majestically told, Edward Rutherfurd paints a thrilling portrait of one of the most singular and remarkable countries in the world.

MILLIONS OF COPIES SOLD: Rutherfurd is an international bestseller, whose books are consistently New York Times bestsellers and continue to sell well on the backlist. He’s a celebrated master of the historical form.

NOBODY DOES IT BETTER. IN FACT NOBODY ELSE DOES IT: Because it takes years of research to construct these intricate family sagas, as well as a gift for dramatic plotlines, only Rutherfurd delivers this kind of sweeping, brilliantly-rendered historical novel.

SPOTLIGHT ON CHINA: Most North Americans are familiar with a vague outline of Chinese history, and as a constantly evolving new super power China is regularly in the media limelight. Edward’s loyal fans will come to this book no matter what, but so will those curious about China’s intricate history who have read nonfiction books like The Silk Roads, as well as those who are fans of novelists that regularly explore Chinese history like Amy Tan and Lisa See.

EDWARD RUTHERFURD is the internationally bestselling author of eight novels, including the New York Times bestsellers Paris, New York, London, The Princes of Ireland and The Rebels of Ireland.

Praise for Paris:

“Rutherfurd’s prose is so clean and unembellished, the dialogue so fluid and true to the era it’s spoken in that…the more you read, the more you want. The characters are memorable…. Hemingway-esque…. The book is delightfully filmic.” —Montreal Gazette

“You will savour the novel even if you haven’t been there. Like Paris, Paris never disappoints.” —The Vancouver Sun

“For his eighth novel, Edward Rutherfurd sticks faithfully to his bestselling formula…. Once again Rutherfurd proves his real knack is with history, in detail and sweeping overviews alike, to give genuinely fascinating re-creations of Parisian life through the ages.” —Daily Mail (UK)

“[Paris] is highly accomplished…. Popular fiction at its best.” —Sydney Morning Herald
