Join us at the Hong Kong launch of Unsavory Elements: a riveting anthology of vivid stories and essays from some of the most celebrated writers to have ever lived in China.

“Westerners are flocking to the PRC in increasing numbers to chase their dreams even as Chinese emigrants seek their own dreams abroad. Life as an outsider in China has many sides to it — weird, fascinating and appalling, sometimes all together. We asked foreigners who live or have lived in China for a significant period to tell us a story of their experiences and 28 contributions resulted. It’s all about living, learning and loving in a land unlike any other in the world.”

The book was launched to a packed house at the Shanghai literary festival last month. Read a review. On May 23, five of the book’s authors — Tom Carter, Graham Earnshaw, Bruce Humes, Pete Spurrier and Nury Vittachi — will be talking about their China experiences at a panel event and booksigning in Hong Kong.
