Read from May 07 to June 14, 2012

Read this after enjoying Jade Peony and All that Matters. It didn't really work for me. He opens with the fascinating revelation that at 57 he discovers he was adopted after a woman called him on a radio show. He picks this up again towards the end of the book but in between are a series anecdotes: some of them are charming and funny (the uncle who inadvertently took him to a burlesque show, but many just left me puzzled as to why they'd been included.
