I'm a hybrid American/Spanish journalist perhaps best known for my work on China and a book I wrote during the 5 years I spent living and working in Beijing.
LEFTOVER IN CHINA, as it's called, has been published in English, French, and Mandarin and became a DangDang bestseller in China three days after it was released. It has been reviewed and referenced widely by major international press and has also become - or so I'm generously told - something of a hit in China. If you read Chinese, here's plenty more on that.
Despite now being home in the US, China is always on my mind. Some of my fondest memories are of my days in Beijing, as are some of my dearest friends. It's a place I still write about and visit as often as possible, though my reporting focus now also includes Cuba (another very misunderstood and completely bewitching country) on which I report for The Economist.
