Li Lianxia


A great guide for getting to know the hutongs (traditional housing) of China's capital. More than forty homes of famous former Beijing residents are featured (including Mao Zedong and Reginald Johnston, tutor to the Last Emperor). Detailed locations with all cross streets are shown (think of a high-class 'Maps to LA Stars homes' but with a historical and literary bent). Illustrated with beautiful full-color photos throughout, this handy-sized guide also includes chapters on daily life in the hutongs, traditional quadrangle homes (siheyuar) and a comprehensive listing of more than thirty traditional Beijing temple fairs. This is THE guide to take with you on your next trip to Beijing, during your visit for the '08 Olympics or for the comfort of your favorite armchair.Li Lianxia is the author of 'Hutong Alleys--Former Residences of Celebrities', published 2005 under ISBN 9787119033464 and ISBN 7119033468.
