Su Tong
Binu and the Great Wall


Binu and the Great Wall

Binu And The Great Wall is a wonderful myth retold in the words of Su Tong, the author of ‘Rice’.  The myth of Binu and how her tears washed away the Great Wall have been passed down through the ages. It is a tale of hardship, brutality and undying love. Su Tong’s version of the myth, brings to the reader the harshness and brutality that led to the constuction of the wall and the terrible effects it had on the common people.

They're killing the pub trade in Coventry

PUB owners say the traditional English boozer is under threat of extinction.

Landlords have spoken out as latest figures show that four pubs a day nationally are closing.

-------------------------------------

This was in the papers today - they say its because of the smoking ban and the rise in prices. I hope not, I do not drink much alcohol (I go for my coffeesand fruit juices) but I like going to the pub. Its such a English thing to do - right from university days in Canterbury where we used to play cards in the pub and I would nurse one drink all night.

They also said that pubs which offer food also do better. I am very fond of Liquid Bar Barrington's mutton curry and rice!

Jane offers food and soup at Liquid Bar/cafe and they have live music at the weekends.
