Share this book    
On a Chinese Screen is a travel bookmade of a series of short sketches Maugham made during a trip along the Yangtze River, and although ostensibly about China the book is equally focused on the various westerners he met during the trip and their struggles to accept or adapt to the cultural differences they encounter, which are often as enormous and as alienating as the country itself.
