The new book from the author of The Sex Lives of Cannibals takes us along on his often hilarious tour of China. We travel from Beijing (bad air!) to Shanghai (more bad air!) to the Gobi Desert and Tibet, with a stop in Hong Kong along the way. The author's keen eye for detail and extraordinary wit make this journey as fun as it is informative! While snacking on Yak and singing the Eagles in a karaoke bar, Troost guides the reader through a China that is a modern industrial giant, with teeming cities and towering skyscrapers, but we also see a China where Mao is ever present and an underlying feeling of menace treads under the urine soaked streets. To get an insiders look at the home of the 2008 Olympic Games, this fun book comes highly recommended.
