When the dust settles from my still-in-progress “book tour for the post-book tour age” (as I’ve taken to calling the series of events relating to China in the 21st Century that I’ve been taking part in, sometimes having the stage to myself, sometimes sharing it with others), I’m going to try to write something about the experience as a whole (though there won’t be any video log of my travels a la theones by Rebecca Skloot I’ve been enjoying: h/t to Mara H. for leading me to them on the web). But for now I’m still too busy accumulating frequent flyer miles (and sometimes selling and signing some books) to do that, so a few quick updates from the road (or actually from home, but about to go back on the road) will have to suffice.
