About the Author
Matt Coleman is a University of Queensland Chinese Language graduate who has spent six years in China—long enough to know that understanding foul language is a very important and essential skill that must be used wisely. Edmund Backhouse is the nom de guerre of a Beijing-based writer and translator. Despite his potty mouth and his choice of namesake, he leads a relatively virtuous life.
