Editorial Reviews

Review

"As an American who has lived in China for many years, Cook provides insights into a culture that is notoriously opaque to outsiders, its intricacies and quirks revealing themselves only after significant immersion"--Kirkus Reviews

"Funny, assumption-challenging, and above all unique...Cook steels his wonderfully iconoclastic opinions with a deep knowledge gained from two decades in Beijing"--Bookish Asia

"Each [essay] is brilliantly written"--Shanghai Talk magazine's "Top 3 China Books for 2016"

About the Author

I am an American essayist and novelist based in China since 1994. My writing philosophy: downmarket, big concept, provocative, discriminating, outrageous, creepy, sordid (every conceivable epithet has been thrown at me). Ballard, Beckett, Borges, Dick, Kafka, Hesse, Melville, Mishima, Sade are my influences.
