really liked it
bookshelves: fiction, food, immigrant-stories, travel

2 things I love: China and food. So this was a good match for me. It reminded me of my month in China and all of the things I felt and understood about being a foreigner. I have always dreamed of going back. Maybe even living there in the expat community and really trying to live-live there. So it is interesting to see that while you could accomplish great things there (see: big fish, small pond) Your sense of alienation never goes away.
