From the Author
The author has been studying Chinese for the past eight years. Starting with no background in the language he studied hard at Cornell, went to Beijing, met his beautiful wife, and now speaks Chinese every day. Disappointed with the quality of intermediate and advanced Chinese books, he wrote this book focused on easing the intermediate/advanced student into reading some of China's best literature. He currently lives in Japan where he continues his passion for learning languages. He continues to study Chinese and is in now learning Japanese as well.
