Bei Dao, described by Michael Hofmann as 'one of the great poets of our time', has gained international acclaim for his haunting interior poetic landscapes. Now, he brings to the essay the elliptical precision of his poetry, combined with a diarist's openness and humour.These twenty pieces form a poet's travelogue A- since his exile from China in 1989, Bei Dao has lived in seven countries and visited many others. In his tales and descriptions of cities such as Copenhagen, Durham, Johannesburg, New York, Paris and Prague and in his stories of ordinary Chinese immigrants, as well as of literary, artistic and political figures, his thoughts and anecdotes convey a unique charm and insight.

Review:

"'Bei Dao's genius and his menace consist in a seamless merging of metaphor and politics: his is a guerrilla battle fought on the level of language.' Nate Johnson, Chicago Tribune 'One of the great poets of our time' Michael Hoffman, TLS 'Bei Dao uses words as if he were fighting for his life with them... [He] has found a way to speak to all of us.' Jonathan Spence, New York Times Book Review"
