This is one of my favourite reviews of Brushstrokes in Time. I am fortunate that whoever reads my novel(including those named above)are impressed by its authenticity.They say they feel transported to the time and place when the courageous Stars artists campaigned for ‘in Art Freedom’. For that I have to thank Qu Leilei who was there. Brushstrokes in Time is not his life fictionalised but he was eyewitness to most of the momentous events which form a background to this story of love,courage and hope. Paul says it is a MUST read for anyone interested in China of that period (1965-83)
