The Dragon’s Tale

The South China Morning Post has published a profile of former New York Times Shanghai bureau chief Seth Faison, who has recently published a book about his experiences in China, South of the Clouds: Exploring the Hidden Realms of China: “Unlike many of his peers, Faison, 45, relates those events by focusing on ordinary people – not the world leaders whose words he taped at press conferences. His book is an anecdotal portrayal of China and the intricacies of its culture by a man who just happens to be a journalist. At times it appears more the work of the student who arrived in Xi’an in 1984, and of the author who now hopes to write novels and narrative non-fiction on China, than of the journalist who came in between. ” The full profile is here, via AsiaMedia.
