My dream is to travel the world and invest in real estate!
To become a professional writer.
Author! (which is sorta what I’m doing now)
Alan, I need to read your book anyway — my first stint in Beijing was in 1979 and I travel there regularly now (oh, and I used to play in a band. And made tapes of all kinds of bands like Talking Heads and Bowie for interested Beijingers back in 79).
So this is my kind of book, for sure!
Thanks guys. Lisa, I loved your book! I thought you captured contemporary Beijing beautifully and perfectly. the pacing was great, the characters vivid., the confusion perfect.
Please drop me a line. I would to chat with you. We sure a lot of the same views about things and after reading your book I am pretty confident you will like mine. Nice to be in touch.
And thanks Erika.

Alan, I’m sorry I missed the book launch at Tribeca B&N, but only because my Mandarin class was that evening! 🙂 Look forward to reading your book soon. Also I would love to interview you on my proprietary blog, globalasianculture.com. Please let me know if you are available for a chat.
Best, Liz. (@GlobalAsianista)
