About the Author:

American Book Award winner Alex Kuo has traveled back-and-forth between America and China for 73 years. He lives in Idaho.

Review:

With irony, wit and intelligence, Alex Kuo shares his unique experiences in China and Hong Kong. Part memoir, part cultural analysis, My Private China skewers stereotypes and misconceptions with the sharp eye and beautiful prose of the novelist and poet he is also. This is a must-read for China watchers and anyone willing to get behind the lazy reporting and political posturing that so often informs—or misinforms—writing about China. (Robert Abel, author of Riding a Tiger)

In My Private China, Alex Kuo plays with the multiple realities of Tiananmen Square China, global China, and post-colonial China. The shifting scales of ancient, present and future merge into a meditation on China's place and China's space. Though he may reveal that the tank gun barrels in 1989 Tiananmen were plugged, Kuo is certainly unplugged in this insightful collection. (R. Edward Grumbine, author of Where the Dragon Meets the Angry River)
