I have no idea who Lincoln Kaye is, but he sure can write. The title doesn't do the book justice, but, then again, I couldn't think what would be a better one. This book is an interesting vehicle through which one gets a view of China, but more importantly a view of people and cultures in transition. I stongly recommned the book and am pretty sure this isn't the last we hear of Mr. Kaye. Stirring portrait of modern China. Published by Thriftbooks.
