about

The story of a young man's outrageous adventures in China and his search for identity in the most unexpected of places.

Mitch Moxley came to Beijing in the spring of 2007 to take a job as a writer and editor for China Daily, the country's only English-language national newspaper. The Chinese economy was booming, the Olympics were on the horizon, and Beijing was being transformed into a world-class city overnight. Moxley planned to stay only through the Olympics and then head back to Canada.

But that was six years ago. In that time, Moxley fed a goat to a lion, watched a lingerie-wearing bear ride a bicycle, and crisscrossed the country writing stories. He also appeared as one of Cosmopolitan's one hundred most eligible bachelors in China, acted in a state-funded Chinese movie, and was paid to pose as a fake businessman.

During Moxley's journey of self-exploration, his comic adventures and misadventures in China gave way to the creation of his alter ego—Mi Gao, or Tall Rice. A funny and honest look at expat life, Apologies to My Censor also depicts the ways a country can touch and inspire you.

Mitch Moxley spent six years as a freelance writer in Beijing. He writes about culture, travel, and current affairs for publications includingThe Atlantic, theNew York Times, theGlobe and Mail, and others. Mitch went to China in 2007 to work at the state-ownedChina Daily.

Editorial Reviews

Though [Moxley] infuses Apologies with much insight and color commentary as to the cultural divides between East and West, it’s his own interior development that makes his memoir a success.
