This American Life rebroadcast

The May 22 episode of This American Life is a rebroadcast of “Americans In China,” which features me reading from what became Chapter One (“Winter Solstice”) of In Manchuria. The 17-minute segment begins at the 38:45 mark, introduced by Ira Glass. I find it hard to believe this first aired nearly three years ago; I remember writing it in a Changchun city Home Inn like it was yesterday. Now I’m a father, and in Singapore, writing the next book.
