Peter has recently written an introduction to a new book by Guo Yue, who has an accompanying CD just out on Real World Records.
"I have never read such a vivid account of what it is like to have grown up during the Cultural Revolution in China, especially for a young artist. The story is made all the more tangible by the constant references to food.
I have heard Guo Yue play his music, I have eaten his food, and can guarantee he delivers in a magical way.
What he and Clare have created with this book will leave no one wanting, and everyone hungry." Peter Gabriel
You can hear the wonderful sound of Yue and his music on today's Midweek program on BBC Radio 4, and if like me you're captivated by the voice, the book and the music you can have noodles for lunch.1 February 2006 at 1:47pm
