The Silent Traveller Returns! Distinguished author, artist, calligrapher, and poet Chiang Yee wrote and illustrated a dozen "Silent Traveller" books, from 1937-1972. The last to focus on an American city was The Silent Traveller in San Francisco, originally published in 1964. Long out-of-print, the book reveals Mr. Chiang's special affection for a city whose fog-draped hills and winding streets recall for him the poetic beauty and mystery of his much loved Chinese landscape. From Market Street to the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf to Telegraph Hill, Chinatown to Berkeley, Oakland, and the Napa Valley, Mr. Chiang always charms the reader with his quizzical, quiet observations which fuse the old with the new, the historical with the present. Illustrated with 16 color and 50 black-and-white illustrations by Mr. Chiang, the book presents a unique view of one of the world's most enchanting and picturesque cities

The silent traveller in London by Yee Chiang( Book )

33 editions published between 1938 and 2010 in English and Chinese and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the 1930s Western books about China were common. But a book about the West, and particularly London, written by a Chinese author, was a rarity - and continues to be so. Chiang Yee's account of London, first published in 1938, is original in more ways than one. Not only one of the first widely available books written by a Chinese author in English, it also reverses the conventions of travel writing. For here the "exotic" subject matter is none other than London and its people, quizzically observed as an alien culture by a foreign writer. Immersing himself in the strange rituals of London life, Chiang Yee set out to learn about Londoners, their habits and their pleasures. In pubs and parks, buses and art galleries, he watched the locals at work and at play. Fascinated by such social conventions as afternoon tea and discussing the weather, he tried to make sense of British society, treating his subjects with a mix of wonderment and affection. Beards, feeding the pigeons, street names: all such everyday phenomena were a source of curiosity. As he lived through the capital's various seasons, and endured the notorious London fogs, Chiang Yee's affinity with the city and its people grew, reflected in his simple and lyrical prose. Illustrated with the author's own atmospheric sketches and Chinese calligraphy, The Silent Traveller in London is also a book about China and a world in transition. Comparing London with his native land, Chiang Yee draws parallels and contrasts, seeking to rectify misunderstandings and stereotypes regarding Chinese life. Explaining many of the central attitudes of Confucianism through anecdotes and folk tales, this book evokes a China under threat from Japanese invasion and a distant homeland viewed with wistful nostalgia. -- Back cover
