#travelbookclub discusses The Vagrants by Yiyun Li

This month #travelbookclub read The Vagrants by Yiyun Li. Set in 1970s China, it follows a cast of characters as a rebellion against Communist rule begins to grow. The book doesn’t shy away from the brutal realities of oppressive regimes, but is beautifully written and had many themes to discuss.

You can read highlights of the discussion here.

If you love travel and love books, why not join the #travelbookclub chat on Twitter next month? We’ll be reading An Octopus in My Ouzo by Jennifer Barclay and discussing it on August 3 at 9pm BST.
