Hodder & Stoughton, London, 1996. First edition. Book condition: fine and virtually free of shelf wear. Dust jacket condiition: fine. Unclipped and with only minor shelf wear around the edges. Some colour loss to spine. Sue Arnold has two British grandfathers and two Burmese grandmothers. It was a conundrum she had never considered exploring until assigned by the Observer to cover a royal tour to China in 1985. The opportunity to stop off in Burma on the way home was irresistable. Thus began a quest for her ancestors which grew the more convoluted and surprising the further she delved into her family story. The result is this gem of a book, a sparklingly witty, and sometimes very touching read, about a quest for roots which turned into a detective story, set in a piece of history which is gone for ever and a country which is no longer easy for western travellers to visit and calls itself Burma no more.
