The book comes out on October 10 and is available for advance purchase here.
Its cover blurbs include a trio of nonfiction writers whose work spans China, Africa, Siberia and more:
“The Road to Sleeping Dragon is an invaluable resource for anybody determined to engage with today’s China. Rather than telling readers what to think about China, Michael Meyer’s lively memoir shows them how to think – how to embrace new experiences, new perspectives, and the ever-changing new incarnations of this incredible country.”—Peter Hessler, author of Oracle Bones and River Town
China has never had an explicator and enthusiast like Michael Meyer. His story of how he got to know the country is exciting, sometimes hair-raising, and always fascinating. This is a terrific book and I recommend it highly. –Ian Frazier, author of Travels in Siberia
“I’ve been an admirer of Michael Meyer since his first book, and this, his third, only makes me more so. It’s hard for me to think of anyone who can dive into another culture with such infectious zest and curiosity, and who gets in so deep, so fast.”—Adam Hochschild, author of King Leopold’s Ghost
