Nobody Said Not To Go The Life, Loves and Adventures of Emily Hahn by Ken Cuthbertson

When Emily Hahn was asked why she risked her life in the middle of fierce fighting to spend a weekend in Nanking, she said: 'Nobody said not to go!' This indicates the kind of woman that she was.

Emily (Mickey) loved to disobey the rules. This famous writer travelled in Africa alone in the 1930s and caused scandal almost everywhere she went. Expats in China were especially shocked by her having a Chinese boyfriend in a gown and pigtails who was married, and her constantly appearing with her gibbons, Mr and Mrs Mills.

This is a fascinating story which certainly led me to want to know even more about Emily Hahn.
