about

Featuring entirely original writings written exclusively for this work, this anthology is filled with 28 essays from foreigners who live or have lived in China for a significant period of time. The book contains beautiful and enlightening stories about China from such noteworthy writers as Simon Winchester, Peter Hessler, Susan Conley, and Alan Paul, among others. Through their personal stories, they illustrate the many sides of Chinese life—the weird, the fascinating, and the appalling—and share what it’s like to live, learn, and love as an outsider in a land unlike any other in the world.

Tom Carter is a travel writer and photojournalist and the author of China: Portrait of a People.

“These essays have heart. From Urumqi to Shanghai, these foreign devils just can’t help but smile at what China has taught them.”  —Global Times
