http://mysite.verizon.net/Letter_from_ChinaLetter from Chinais a poignant and irreverent diary of the author's yearlong (2001-2) experienceof teaching English to college students in Beijing,People's Republic of China.¿ From the very first pages, the author drawsyou into his struggle with a culture worlds away fromhis comfort zone.¿ The author's generousand compelling personality allowed him to gain access to the lives of hisstudents and their families, who became characters in his tale. One can experiencethe author's wit and humanity throughout the narrative.The author's humorous view of Chinais especially timely and dovetails with the current explosion of interest in thatcountry as it enters the modern world. ¿Thebook is neither a travelogue nor a look at the government, although elements ofthose subjects are woven into the story.¿Instead, it is an engaging look at China,tailored toward those who know little about it.¿Still, those who have lived and/or traveled there will also enjoy thebook as it reminds them of the absurdities they, too, experienced.
