Wonderful!

(5 Sterne)

Well read, very insightful. Snapshots of the lives of westerners living in China at the turn of the century.

What an interesting book. I like the short verbal snapshots of life and people. But of course WSM is one of the finest writers. Highly recommend. Good readers overall.
