David Robertson moved to China in 2013 on a whim. He saw an online advertisement for an English training school in Suzhou, China and thought, “Why not?” "A Glimpse of China: An Outsider’s Inside Look at the Middle Kingdom" is more than a memoir of a foreigner’s time and adventures in China. Robertson has used his personal experiences as an English teacher to paint a picture of many aspects of Chinese culture. Working primarily with adults who wanted to improve their conversational English, he had the unique opportunity of discussing a range of topics with a wide array of people. From food and travel to family dynamics and the lives of children to cultural practices and peculiarities, Robertson discussed with his students numerous aspects of life in China. As a foreigner, Robertson’s book also helps create an idea of what to expect for those visiting China or interacting with Chinese people. By using his own stories and interpretations of what or why these things happened, his writing helps those who have not yet encountered Chinese culture to get a feel for what they might experience. With anecdotes that make you laugh, cringe, wonder, and imagine, A Glimpse of China will entertain while giving you an outsider’s look inside the Middle Kingdom.
