Read full description of the books:



An epic New York Times bestseller chronicling the rise of a Taipan.

John Denton lands in famed Shanghai in 1903, a young customs officer newly assigned. A "griffin," green and inexperienced, he struggles to adapt to the roiling city. Tailors live and sleep on the floor of their employers' shops, and onlookers dip money in the blood of freshly beheaded pirates to make the bills lucky. The life teeming in the city's narrow streets and grand boulevards is beyond exotic. Shanghai's fascinations are of another world. Denton, the expatriate, thrives in China and remains, acquiring wealth and power, children, a mistress. Shanghai claims him, body and soul.

This epic novel spans the most volatile decades of China's existence and reveals to us its amazingly cosmopolitan heart. Shanghai was an international bestseller and is available again for the first time in a decade.

Read information about the author

Ebook Shanghai read Online! Educated at Oxford and Princeton, I have taught philosophy in England and Hong Kong, where I was for some years Head of the Philosophy Department in Hong Kong University. Equally at home in East and West, I now divide my time between the two. My novels are set in China, India, Egypt and Europe.
I think too many western novelists are concerned only with their own small corner of the western world, as if that was the centre of everything. It isn't.
