In this second volume of memoir, following his acclaimed Colours of the Mountain , Chen arrives in Beijing, armed with a dogged determination to learn English and familiarise himself with 'all things Western', he must compete with every other student to win a chance to study in the US - a chance that rests in the shrewd and corrupt hands of the all - powerful professors. In this remarkable book - by turns poetic, ribald, hilarious, and heartbreaking - Chen retains his indomitable spirit, but will he be any closer to attaining his goal?
Da Chen is also the author of Colours of the Mountain and China's Son. An accomplished flautist and brush calligrapher, he lives with his wife and two children in New York's Hudson Valley.
