City of Devils in the Times Literary Supplement – “A Strange Urban Aberration”

Posted: February 1st, 2019 | No Comments »

Marcel Theroux reviewed City of Devils for the (22 January) TLS – perceptively and with some good criticisms. It’s pay-walled I’m afraid, but i was interested that someone chose the painting Shanghai Footbridge (from the early 1930s) to accompany the review – the painting is by the Taiwanese painter Tan Ting-pho, who taught at the Xinhua Art College in Shanghai from 1929 till about 1933….if you don’t know his work it’s worth a google search….
