Yue He Parkinson, a mother, wife, author, cook and Financial Times columnist. Yue writes in English about China, and in Chinese about the West, with the benefit of two mindsets combining Chinese and Western empathy and know-how. She is the first and only Chinese writer who has been persistently writing in her Chinese articles that the UK has transformed itself into a far more egalitarian country than the widely held Chinese perception of the UK’s class-based society. Yue has translated food guru Ken Hom’s autobiography into Chinese. Her Chinese book on Brexit will soon be published.
