Glagoslav Publications Releases White Shanghai by Elvira Baryakina


The roaring twenties in the most cosmopolitan city of China through the prism of Russian nobility's struggle in exile after the Red Revolution is the story at the core of the historical novel White Shanghai by USA based author Elvira Baryakina.

London, United Kingdom, January 19, 2013 --(PR.com)-- A historical novel White Shanghai by Elvira Baryakina tells the story of love, money and power set against the ideological clashes of communism, nationalism and colonialism of 1920’s China.

Some call the place the "Splendour of the East;" others the "Whore of Asia." A melting pot of different nations, fused by war and commerce, this is the Shanghai of the 1920s. The Great Powers are greedily exploiting China for its cheap labour and reaping the cruel rewards of the booming opium trade. The precarious balance of foreign interests was upset by the eternal troublemakers—the Russians. A squadron of ships illegally entered Shanghai harbour carrying two thousand refugees running away from communists.

Among the refugees is Klim Rogov, an émigré journalist whose life and marriage have been claimed by the Russian Revolution. He finds work as a reporter at a British-run newspaper, rubbing shoulders with international gangsters while defying webbed intrigues of sinister communist agents. Amidst the survival frenzy all that keeps him going is the hope that someday he'll be reunited with his beloved wife Nina.

After years of research in libraries and archives throughout the world, Baryakina masterly created an adventurous story, taking her readers on a breathless journey of passion, political games and crime.
