In Manchuria 12:00 22nd Mar / The Bookworm – Beijing

Michael Meyer’s second book, In Manchuria: A Village Called Wasteland and the Transformation of Rural China, is about his three years living and teaching in the rural northwest Chinese rice-farming community of Wasteland, hometown to his wife’s family.  Meyer depicts tremendous change, from new roads to organic farming, in this vivid, personal, and at times heartbreaking look at a commune’s transformation from backwater village to company town.
