About the book: 

Have you ever tried to learn another language? When Zhuang first arrives in London from China she feels like she is among an alien species. The city is disorientating, the people unfriendly, the language a muddle of personal pronouns and moody verbs. But with increasing fluency in English surviving turns to living. And they say that the best way to learn a language is to fall in love with a native speaker... Selected from the book: A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers  by Xiaolu Guo.

VINTAGE MINIS: GREAT MINDS. BIG IDEAS. LITTLE BOOKS. Also in the Vintage Minis series: Babies  by Anne Enright,  Depression  by William Styron, Race  by Toni Morrison and, Home  by Salman Rushdie.
