About this title:

Synopsis: "Kim?s fast-paced, witty, and extremely involving novel is set in feudal 19th-century Korea, in the household of wealthy Mr. O, whose first wife, Mistress Kim, dies in childbirth as the story opens. This sad event triggers a power struggle in the house?s elaborate social structure, and the novel lays out an ambitiously complex web of social and interpersonal dynamics. The master?s second wife, Mistress Yee and her maid Taehee, for instance, begin scheming for more influence, and those schemes are resisted by the maid Nani and her stalwart mentor, Mrs. Huang ? and all the while, outside the household, peasants are growing restless and Scottish missionaries are attempting to make inroads into the country. Kim handles all these interweaving plotlines with an easy, chatty skill ? this book reads like a (slightly!) more modern version of The Tale of Genji, at once intimate and universal. Highly recommended," reviewed by Historical Novel Society.

Book Description Pen & Sword Books Ltd. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Black Arrows Blue Diamonds: Leading the Legendary RAF Flying Display Teams, Brian Mercer, Brian Mercer is one of the most outstanding post-war RAF fighter pilots and in this eminently readable autobiography he recaptures life as it was in the days of transition from flying piston-powered aircraft to jet power. His flying and leadership skills resulted in a long association with what was then considered as the finest aerobatic display team in the world - Treble One Squardron's 'Black Arrows'. Flying the elegant black Hawker Hunters in large formation displays was no easy task and the author explains in great detail how their legendary precision was achieved, revealing many exciting incidents en route. When Treble One's Hunters were replaced with the supersonic Lightining fighter, it soon became clear that these superfast aircraft were not suited to close-up display flying. Brian was then asked to form a new RAF display team and continue with Hunters. This was to become the No. 92 Squadron's Blue Diamonds', who inherited the star role. Faced with the fact that future promotion within the RAF would move him from cockpit to desk, Brian elected to join then then fledgling airline, Cathay Pacific. His story continues with many exciting incidents flying from the company's home base at Kai Tak in Hong Kong. Bookseller Inventory # B9781844153923
