Bestselling author and popular blogger Neil Gaiman blends myth and magic, fact and fiction, in this spellbinding account of his own Journey to the West across modern China in the footsteps of Monkey.
Since childhood Neil Gaiman has been just a little bit obsessed with the stories of the mythical Monkey, as told in China’s most famous work of literature, Journey to the West. And when he first visited China himself he realized that all his preconcpetions about this vast and contradictory land were simply wrong. He fell in love with the food, the hospitality of the people, the respect for age and the past and the modern strangeness of Beijing.
Monkey and Me is a book about China, about myth and magic and about Neil’s own personal Journey. As he travels from China to India in the footsteps of his mythical precursor the people he meets, the places he sees and the adventures he experiences are intertwined with magical tales drawn from China’s ancient legends.
