Críticas:

"Food is only the flavouring in Ang's book, where the real meat lies in her insight into life in contemporary China."-Straits Times (Singapore)"A rare glimpse into the day-to-day experiences of those who inhabit a paradoxically intransigent and transforming modern China. Audra Ang serves up a sweet, sour, savory, and bitter tale that culinarily paints the complexity and poignancy of life for today's Chinese." -Grace Young, James Beard Award-winning author of Stir-Frying to the Sky's Edge"To the People, Food Is Heaven is like a fresh and generous Chinese meal, varied, colorful, and delicious. Audra Ang takes you with her on a thoughtful journey through China, reflecting on everything from the politics of protest and mysterious lake monsters to the lives of farmers, scholars, activists, cops, and reporters. Ang's own story, woven among those of the people she met, is a moving tale of how we find ourselves and each other, often in the most unexpected places."-Rachel DeWoskin, author of Foreign Babes in Beijing"Audra Ang has a wonderful eye for detail and a passion for good food and good company. After reading her beautiful memoir, you'll feel as though you've met every character personally and shared a meal with each of them."-Philip P. Pan, author of Out of Mao's Shadow"Audra Ang has written a fast-paced memoir of her eventful years in China, a period of turmoil and change that shaped today's country. Ang-a Singaporean of Chinese descent-uses her very Chinese love of food as a way to penetrate Chinese society and bring us closer to ordinary people. Throughout it all, she writes clearly, with great sympathy and an open mind."-Ian Johnson, author of Wild Grass"Writing in clear bold prose, Ang offers us a feast of intimate and heartfelt vignettes viewed through the lens of food-part reportage, part history, part travelogue-proving that, for the Chinese people, what they eat and if they eat has always been their primary preoccupation and greatest pleasure." -Leslie Li, author of Daughter of Heaven"A mouth-watering taste of modern China. A hard-boiled journalist and bon viveur, Ang eats her way across the Middle Kingdom and provides us with a sumptuous feast of food anecdotes and journalistic insights."-Jonathan Watts, author of When a Billion Chinese Jump

Reseña del editor:

In China, the world's next superpower, life is comfortable for the fortunate few. For others, it's a hand-to-mouth struggle for a full stomach, a place to live, wages for work done, and freedom to speak openly. In a place where few things are more important than food, "Have you eaten yet?" is another way of saying hello. After traversing the country and meeting its people, Ang shares her delicious experiences with us. She tells of a clandestine cup of salty yak butter tea with a Tibetan monk during a military crackdown and explains how a fluffy spring onion omelet encapsulates China's drive for rural development. You'll have lunch with some of the country's most enduring activists, savor meals with earthquake survivors, and get to know a house cleaner who makes the best fried chicken in all of Beijing. Ang bites into the gaping divide between rich and poor, urban and rural reform, intolerance for dissent, and the growing dissatisfaction with those in power. By serving these topics to us one at a time, To the People, Food Is Heaven provides a fresh perspective beyond the country's anonymous identity as an economic powerhouse. Ang plates a terrific, wide-ranging feast that is the new China. Have you eaten yet?
