Is anyone in the UK selling books published by Penguin China?

By Helen Wang, published

Are there any copies of Sheng Keyi's Northern Girls or Wang Xiaofang's The Civil Servant's Notebook on sale in the UK? Christmas is coming and I was thinking these might make good presents, but it's not easy to get copies of them in the UK. I contacted Penguin China, and it appears they have been launched in the Asia Pacific territory, and the best way is to try and get ebook editions on Penguin.com.au, or to place orders in Australia, or ask a friend to bring them in the luggage. Is anyone in the UK selling these titles?

Total lack of response suggests not. Well, that's a real shame.

I thought there might be a way to order the books on Amazon and have them shipped, but I guess they're not even on Amazon yet...

How do you say "Catch-22" in Chinese?

I think, although I can't promise, I've seen Northern Girls at Foyles in London. Can't see it on their website, but they had Sheng Keyi in for an event earlier in the year.
