After reading "Country Driving" I couldn't wait to read this collection of similar stories based on the narrator's experiences in China, mainly. I was not disappointed. In fact, I read it again recently which is something I never, ever do but I was taking a travel writing class and wanted to see if this writing was as good as I remembered. And it was. Just delicious. And, although "Country Driving" is probably one of the best travel writing narratives written about a crazy country going through an incredible transition, this was just as fascinating. Although I have to say, the narrator has a way with China stories that will never get old. Midwestern family life? Not so much.
