"It's rare that a writer truly lives a book, commits himself to the rhythms of a place, and turns research into something deeper. For the past two years, Michael Meyer has lived and taught in the hutong neighborhoods of Beijing; nobody writing in English knows this world as well as he does."

      — Peter Hessler, author of Oracle Bones and River Town

"This is a stunning, compassionate feat of reportage which will long endure."

      —Adam Hochschild, author of King Leopold's Ghost and Bury the Chains
